That doesn't look really similar.  The user found a different patch at
fault, and they were also able to successfully suspend when the tpm_tis
module was removed, but suspend still breaks for me in that case.
Suspend breaks with that commit even when I don't compile any tpm
modules at all.  But I'll try Helmut's fix[1] and let you know if it
works.
