This one and the previous linux-next can't resume from suspend to RAM on my
HP nx6325. The problem is reliably reproducible 100% of the time.

The patch that causes it to happen, as identified by bisection, is:

commit 3dcefa9419f3b8a49921d2218c93a3ddba8e0855
Author: Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz <bzolnier@xxxxxxxxx>
Date: Thu May 22 10:40:19 2008 +1000

ide: use __generic_unplug_device() in ide_do_drive_cmd()

Reverting it along with the next IDE patches (up to and including
commit fd42e6df0fd163411f5c655b4bde4fb6a8910edc
"ide: remove action argument in ide_do_drive_cmd") makes the problem go away.
