3c59x: Get rid of "Trying to free already-free IRQ"

Following trace pops up if we try to suspend with 3c59x ethernet NIC
brought down:

This is because the driver manages interrupts without checking for

Though, there are few other issues with suspend/resume in this driver.
The intention of calling free_irq() in suspend() was to avoid any
possible spurious interrupts (see commit 5b039e68

"3c59x PM fixes"). But,

- On resume, the driver was requesting IRQ just after pci_set_master(),
  but before vortex_up() (which actually resets 3c59x chips).

- Issuing free_irq() on a shared IRQ doesn't guarantee that a buggy
  HW won't trigger spurious interrupts in another driver that
  requested the same interrupt. So, if we want to protect from
  unexpected interrupts, then on suspend we should issue disable_irq(),
  not free_irq().
