Can you see if e0fdace10e75dac67d906213b780ff1b1a4cc360 reverts cleanly?
and fixes it?

The problem is I think you are getting a lockdep splat or rcu issue
before suspending, which sets oops_in_progress and never unsets it,
which means on resume the fb resume path kicks in to show you the oops
that is happening when there isn't actually anything to show. I've
gotten acks to have this reverted I just need to send the patch.
