I can confirm Pavel's findings. Commit 5b06bbcfc2c6 ("x86/power: Fix
some ordering bugs in __restore_processor_context()") broke the
suspend/resume on 32-bit kernel.

v4.15-rc3 works either by reverting the commit or by Pavel's patch.
Fortunately Pavel's patch still keeps the 64-bit suspend/resume ok.
