Unfortunately I did not and still do not have access to the required analyzers.
However, I received an analyzer trace screenshot confirming GL9750 indeed
went idle for ~4.2us. (I've attached it to the bugzilla).

I agree that 4us is more than sufficient for a lot of code execution, especially
these PCI config space accesses for the same device appear to be fairly
close to each other. However, as device resumes occur in parallel and a
global mutex is required for each access, these PCI config space accesses
from multiple devices are serialized arbitrarily causing accesses from the
same device far apart from each other.

The hypothesis came from my observation that PCI config space accesses
from different devices in the slow runs were always interleaved, while they
were mostly grouped together in the fast runs. To further prove the hypothesis,
I added a global lock when save/restore PCI state, forcing the related PCI
config space accesses from the same device grouped together, I always got
fast runs.
