We introduced a timing regression which should be fixed by drm-intel-fixes

At the moment we have a second resume regression that has been difficult to
reproduce, :

commit d1b851fc0d105caa6b6e3e7c92d2987dfb52cbe0

drm/i915: implement BSD ring buffer V2

The workaround for this is to #define HAS_BSD(dev) 0 [i915_drv.h].

Andy, can you try the workaround to see if this is the same issue in a
different guise?

Alternatively, we can be optimistic that it is just a timing issue fixed
in drm-intel-next. :)

Otherwise we will revert that patch. Thanks.
