We don't support suspend-to-disk, right? So the contents of kernel
memory are supposed to be preserved in this suspend? Because if so,
unflushed buffers shouldn't matter. One would think.

That suggests that something is flushing buffers to a device that's
suspended and it's throwing them away instead of rejecting them or

Does stuffing a couple sync calls somewhere before it starts
suspending devices (wherever that is, I don't know) make the problems
go away?
