The first thing to try is to add the acpi addon from Randy and see if
that helps at all. Looking at the log, the first command we issue after
resume times out which smells a lot like an unlock command missing
(which is typically in the GTF list from acpi).

So try this patch on 2.6.16-rc3 (or -rc4, if it applies, haven't
checked) and make sure to keep the ahci patch you have that adds the 4
needed hooks as well.
