Hm, so I've just experienced two instances in a row of reboot just after
reading hibernation image (i.e. exactly the same symptom as before) even
with 3b9f8ed kernel (which contains the fix). Seems like the fix is either
incomplete (just the probability of it happening is lower), or I'm seeing
something differet with the same symptom.

I'll try to figure out whether it's the same VM_BUG_ON() triggering, but
probably will be able to do so only tomorrow.
