2.6.33-rc1+ bisected (?) s2ram regression

After 2.6.33-rc1 suspend to RAM (echo mem > /sys/power/state) stopped working
on my Vaio. Plain 2.6.33-rc1 is fine.

The symptom is that it seems to never finish suspending, and the last
messages on the console stay there forever and the laptop stays dead
(no leds blinking, can't hear the fan, no nothing). I have to press
the power button to use it again.

I bisected it down to e2912009fb7b7157 ("sched: Ensure set_task_cpu() is
never called on blocked tasks"), but it does not revert cleanly for me
to double check it.

[ I tried to "solve" the merge conflict and the kernel compiled, but
s2ram did not work after that. So I am not sure if my bisection culprit
makes sense. ]

This is the bisect log:
