I would expect this to be the same problem we have as regular suspend,
after power off the TSC will have been reset, so resume will have to
somehow bridge that gap. I've no idea if/how it does that.

I remember some BIOSes had crazy TSC ideas for suspend2ram, and we grew
tsc_restore_sched_clock_state() for it.

Playing crazy games like what you're doing just isn't it though.
