Hm, just as background, there are no regression reports I'm aware of
against any of these trees, plus most of the dangerous commits have
been in linux-next for at least two weeks - the majority of them even
longer. The last 2-4 commits of x86/mm are fresher.

But it could be a regression in an older commit in x86/mm just as well,
triggered by you for the first time :-/

Does your laptop CPU have PCID support by any chance? The CPU coming
out of resume with PCID disabled and us not properly re-enabling it
might be a possible failure mode.
