Bug Description

I am not sure that it is something that an issue caused by nvidia-prime
or if it is something that is cause in the drivers or if it is a bug with
the kernel itself, cause it seems to be a problem with Linux PM, so this bug
could be moved if needed

*** What's Wrong? ***

As the title states, I am unable to use the Nvidia GPU when I have changed profile for intel then computer on suspend for more than 30 minutes ( This has to be determined precisely how long until I get the issue ) and then set back the profile to nvidia.

So basically, it seems that the nvidia modules are unable to be loaded, I have tried to fix
the issue using bbswitch. It doesn't work neither, if the /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000\:01\:00.0/power/control is set to auto, I am unable to load the kernel modules anymore.

*** What do I expect ***

Well, I was hoping that I would be able to keep my laptop on and simply switch from one GPU to other
seamlessly. It is, until I put my laptop on suspend for an extended time while I am on powersaving mode

The issue happens also when I am using lightdm

This is the result of my nvidia-smi

I am planning to test this command :

`echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000\:01\:00.0/reset`

I have been able to reset my PCI with the following command:

echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000\:01\:00.0/remove
sleep 1
echo "1" > /sys/bus/pci/rescan
