I reproduced the problem with the Tejun's patch applied, so I'm now quite
sure the problem is related to the suspend of controller ports (which is done
by scheduling SCSI error handling on the controller).

Anyway, below is a new version of my patch that plays a bit nicer with
the resume code. Can you please check if it still fixes the problem for you?

Thanks,
Rafael

Subject: SATA / AHCI: Do not play with the link PM during suspend to RAM (v2)
My Acer Ferrari One occasionally loses communication with the HDD
(which in fact is an Intel SSD) during suspend to RAM. The symptom
is that the IDENTIFY command times out during suspend and the device
is dropped by the kernel, so it is not available during resume and
the system is unuseable as a result. The failure is not readily
reproducible, although it happens once every several suspends and
it always happens after the disk has been shut down by the SCSI
layer's suspend routine.

I was able to trace this issue down to the scheduling of error
handling for all of the controller's ports carried out by
ata_host_suspend(), which indicates quirky hardware. However, the
AHCI driver, which is used on the affected box, doesn't really need
to do anything with the controller's ports during suspend to RAM,
because the controller is going to be put into D3 immediately by
ata_pci_device_do_suspend() and it will undergo full reset during
the subsequent resume anyway. For this reason, make the AHCI driver
avoid calling ata_host_suspend() during suspend to RAM which works
around the problem and makes sense as a general optimization.
