5b06bbcfc2c6 describes in it's commit message two bugs that it fixes:
one, as you pointed out, is fixing an issue introduced by ca37e57bbe0cf.
The other one which to my understanding is unrelated to ca37e57bbe0cf,
is fixing "resume when the userspace process that initiated suspect had
funny segments", and provides a straightforward test case for that
issue.
