It doesn't help.

Also, I can reproduce the issue with current -git and kernel preepmtion

I'm not able to do it this way too, so resume seems to be necessary to trigger
it.  I'm going try with the suspend debug in the "core" mode.

That need not suffice.  I have two other boxes that suspend and resume
correctly with 2.6.32-rc, AFAICS.

However, there seems to be a systematic error somewhere, since the failure
always happens at the same place, ie. list_del_init(cwq->; in
run_workqueue(), in preemptible as well as in non-preemptible kernels.

Which is kind of strange, given the !list_empty(&cwq->worklist) test right
before it.
