My Armada 1598 fails to resume on occasion with -current. Fortunately, it
manages to dump a usable core which savecore(8) restores on reboot. On the
couple of occasions where I've gone in with gdb, ISTR seeing soft
interrupt code in the trace...

Next time it crashes, I'll get more details and send-pr.
