Right, the autoreported HEAD may have been already reset to 0 and so hit
the wraparound bug which caused it to exit early without actually
quiescing the ringbuffer.

Another possibility is that I added a 3s timeout waiting for a request if
IRQs were suspended:

commit b5ba177d8d71f011c23b1cabec99fdaddae65c4d
Author: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>
Date: Tue Dec 14 12:17:15 2010 +0000

drm/i915: Poll for seqno completion if IRQ is disabled

Both of those I think are symptoms of another problem, that perhaps during
suspend we are shutting down parts of the chip before idling?
