While looking around, I found that AcpiEnterSleepStateS4Bios() has
similar spin loop at the bottom, but with a call to AcpiOsStall()
(== DELAY()) before AcpiGetRegister(). So I tried adding it to
AcpiEnterSleepState() too, and to my amazement, the problem went away.
I tried several ten times of suspending and waking up the laptop,
but I'm no longer able to reproduce it. My question, though, is why
why just a DELAY() makes any difference (ISTR making gd_spinlocks_wr
volatile didn't solve the problem).
I still can't resume with this patch. It hangs after acpi_cmbat0: initialized (or so). However, with some modifications before i managed to get it to panic within fork1()/vm_page_insert(), so I guess that's further down the road. Not sure what I changed so that I could reproduce this...
When the system hangs, the keyboard is dead as well, so I can't break to ddb or such.
