Hello Kai-Heng,
Thanks for your response. I would like clarify/understand Lenovo X1 
Carbon setup:
How laptop connected to the docking station? Thunderbolt or Lenovo 
proprietary connection?
Where is LAN located (physically) in a laptop or dock?
PHY located in docking, right?

And last question: does this system supported Sx or S0ix (do you know)?
The reason I ask it due from my understanding dock always connected to 
the power and system should be Sx supported.

Therefore may be we need introduce difference behavior between Sx and 
S0ix support. (if I understand correctly, such systems as Lenovo Carbon 
X1 should be Sx support, we need ignore S0ix entry/exit in such cases - 
ACPI interface should provide us with this info)
