OK, with CPU_FREQ enabled I have the same results as with
ppc32_defconfig or my full config. It fails to resume with your commit
and it works if I revert that commit.

So you are able to resume with my minimal config + CPU_FREQ? This would
be really strange if it is really the exact same model.

To verify if we really have the same model I included some data below. I
also included the gcc and binutils versions.

Please tell me if you have any further ideas on what to test.
