This entry is being used for tracking a regression from 2.6.26. Please don't
close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Not a regression from 2.6.26, apparently.

I can see this problem as well. I don't see it in 2.6.27-rc5. I have ThinkPad T61.

Hmm, so while 2.6.26 is broken for me, 2.6.27-rc5 works here. So I
guess I have separate problem that breaks 2.6.26 resume, and there's
indeed a regression from 2.6.27-rc5 to rc6.
However, Pavel, I see the same symptoms, hitting several times the keyboard makes the resume proceed but the system is 'sleepy' and while not typing, CPUs are loaded by system up to 100% (only one of the two CPUs). No particular process seems to be eating the CPUs.
Thomas debugged this one, I'll attach the temporary diff and let Thomas himself write up a real patch description :-)

Your previous patch worked okay for me... will test this one tommorow.

Tested, and seems to work ok.

Bad new here. This patch breaks resume from RAM on my HP nx6325. Sorry. :-(
Created attachment 17917 [details]
Patch that fixes resume on HP nx6325
Of course this also defeats the purpose of the patch at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=17817&action=edit .
I tried some other things, but none of them worked. :-(
After some more debugging I can say that the patch from comment #7 breaks CPU hotplugging on my machine. More specifically, CPU1 can be offlined, but every attempt to online it causes the box to crash. I guess that's what breaks resume.
Created bug #11611 to follow the issue described in comment #12, since the patch from comment #7 is in the mainline.
Closing this one.
