There's no docking station involved. Just a regular e1000e device connects to root complex.

No thunderbolt involved.

I'd say it's proprietary:

The ethernet port is next to thunderbolt, but it's not thunderbolt:

This I don't know. I'll raise the issue to Lenovo hardware team.

Sx you mean S3?

I think the system supports S3 but it defaults to S0ix.

There's no dock.
For this issue, _nothing_ connects to the ethernet port.

> 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)

For this case S0ix is used.
