On XO-1.5, the use of an SD interface makes suspend/resume without
turning off the WLAN work much better.   Unfortunately, a side effect
was that the firmware for the new chip (Marvell 88W8686, taking half
the power of the one used in XO-1) doesn't yet support wake-on-multicast.

I agree that fixing this is the correct solution.
