In meantime I figured out what's happening. The ordering in
hibernate_snapshot() is wrong. It does:

swsusp_shrink_memory();
suspend_console();
device_suspend(PMSG_FREEZE);
platform_prepare(platform_mode);

disable_nonboot_cpus();

swsusp_suspend();

enable_nonboot_cpus();

platform_finish(platform_mode);
device_resume();
resume_console();

We disable everything in device_suspend() including timekeeping, so any
code which is depending on working timekeeping and timer functionality
(which is suspended in timekeeping_suspend() as well) is busted.

enable_nonboot_cpus() definitely relies on working timekeeping and
timers depending on the codepath. It's just a surprise that this did not
blow up earlier (also before clock events).

I changed the ordering of the above to:

disable_nonboot_cpus();

swsusp_shrink_memory();
suspend_console();
device_suspend(PMSG_FREEZE);
platform_prepare(platform_mode);
swsusp_suspend();
platform_finish(platform_mode);
device_resume();
resume_console();

enable_nonboot_cpus();

and non-surprisingly the "my VAIO needs help from keyboard" problem went
away immediately. See patch below. (on top of rc7-hrt1, -mm1 does not
work at all on my VAIO due to some yet not identified wreckage)

I did not yet look into the suspend to ram code, but I guess that there
is an equivalent problem.

But I have no idea why this affects Andrews jinxed VAIO (UP machine),
though I suspect that we have more timekeeping/timer depending code
somewhere waiting to bite us.

Also I still need to debug why the HIBERNATION_TEST code path (which has
a msleep(5000) in it) does not fail, but I postpone this until tomorrow
morning. I'm dead tired after hunting this Heisenbug which changes with
every other printk added to the code. I'm going to add some really noisy
messages for everything which accesses timekeeping / timers _after_
those systems have been shut down.

We really need to fix this once and forever _before_ 2.6.23 final, even
if it requires a -rc8.

Thanks,

tglx
