There was a race in ondemand and conservative which made them lock up on
resume (possibly only on SMP systems though). There's a patch for that
in current -mm, but I suspect there's another problem (still haven't had
any time to track it down).

The workaround is to switch to one of the performance/powersave/user
governors just before suspend, and restore the governor on resume.
