We're calling smp_call_function() with local interrupts disabled, which is
deadlockable.

This, I expect, is because swsusp_suspend() optimistically tries to run
everything with local interrupts disabled.

I don't know why this has suddenly started happening -
timekeeping_resume()->clock_was_set()->on_each_cpu() has been there for a
while. Doesn't mainline do the same thing?

Not sure what to do about this. The best fix would be to teach swsusp to
not be so optmistic: resume functions are called with local irqs _enabled_
- that's part of their call environment. swsusp tries to call them with
local irqs disabled and bad things happen.
