hibernate/resume problem: usb drives.

I have installed David Hare's exe package on a new-ish Acer Aspire 
725-0802 with AMD dual-core processor. I had some hiccups but things 
seem settled for the most part though I'm not through quite yet!

anyway, I got hibernate/resume to work, almost. it resumes nicely 
except for the usb drives.

what definitely doesn't reload is xhci. there apparently is a usb 3.0 
port here and I can't figure out how to get it to wake up 
automagically after hibernate. dmesg says something about 'timeout 
while waiting for a slot' with respect to xhci_hcd.

I have wrestled things to a certain point where if I resume and run 
the following, I get a port:

sudo /sbin/modprobe -r xhci
sudo /sbin/modprobe xhci

so either I would like to do without this expedient or I would like to 
get resume to run it for me.

to get suspend working, I set up the disk to resume in initramifs and 
in fstab. I don't have any other suspend tools installed to my 

I am also uneasy with this setup because it doesn't seem like safe 
practices; I think the kernel is complaining about missing pages. not 
sure of this yet.
