This sounds similar to the swsusp hang I started seeing when I upgraded
from 2.6.11 to 2.6.12-rc1; my touchpad was failing to reinitialize, so
input was calling hotplug which tried to exec /sbin/hotplug, and the
exec() blocked because userland was stopped. If you do Sysrq-T and see
a process with a stack trace like
then you're seeing the same kind of bug.

Try the patch below from Dmitry.


Input: serio - do not attempt to immediately disconnect port if
resume failed, let kseriod take care of it. Otherwise we
may attempt to unregister associated input devices which
will generate hotplug events which are not handled well
during swsusp.
