it also might be useful to understand the history behind the code. 
i looked for a similar dcon unload in the XO-1 resume path, and didn't
find it (but didn't expect to, and so could have missed it).  is it
possible that the unfreeze in the via code was leftover from early
development, when the kernel didn't yet have a dcon driver?
