I just found out, that if I modprobe tpm_tis module with


parameter, the problem doesn't happen any more and suspend works fine.

This definitely wasn't needed on older kernels though, so I'd consider
that still a regression.

Also, can't we make the module automatically detect the machines on which
to apply the workaround? Let's say, based on DMI?
