Also older andy-tracking was doing this if I dont recall wrong.
BTW I figure that the kernel should reload the module ONLY if it was
loaded before suspending... So it will be easier to continue the
connection session.

As stated in previous mails, I guess that we should also add a /sys
parameter (false, by default) that might allow not to unload the module
before suspending, allowing the wifi to stay up while the phone is
sleeping (for allowing things like WOW).
