It surely is, but the root cause need not be there, actually.

The problem only happens with CONFIG_NUMA enabled, only on 32-bit systems
and it _doesn't_ happen if the kernel is booted with highmem=0.

Evidently, CONFIG_NUMA is sufficient for the breakage to appear, even if
CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM is not set (CONFIG_SPARSEMEM is set in this case, but
hibernation works with CONFIG_SPARSEMEM and without CONFIG_NUMA, both for
CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G=y).

I've been investigating this issue for quite some time now and it's starting
to look like a problem with kmap_atomic() or something along these lines.

Thanks,
Rafael
