The system immediately locks up when resuming from suspend. I get to see the mouse cursor and the blue background of KDE's screen lock (but no password entry or anything like that), but cannot do anything.
I can also reproduce on 4.16.7 and 4.17-rc4. This does not happen with amdgpu blacklisted, or with Arch Linux' LTS kernel (4.14.39) though I get other random failures on the LTS kernel.
Unfortunately, the systemd journal does not contain anything after entering suspend so I have no possibility to get at a backtrace.
I did a bisect and git reported this as the culprit:

PM / core: Add NEVER_SKIP and SMART_PREPARE driver flags
The motivation for this change is to provide a way to work around
a problem with the direct-complete mechanism used for avoiding
system suspend/resume handling for devices in runtime suspend.
The problem is that some middle layer code (the PCI bus type and
the ACPI PM domain in particular) returns positive values from its
system suspend ->prepare callbacks regardless of whether the driver's
->prepare returns a positive value or 0, which effectively prevents
drivers from being able to control the direct-complete feature.
Some drivers need that control, however, and the PCI bus type has
grown its own flag to deal with this issue, but since it is not
limited to PCI, it is better to address it by adding driver flags at
the core level.
To that end, add a driver_flags field to struct dev_pm_info for flags
that can be set by device drivers at the probe time to inform the PM
core and/or bus types, PM domains and so on on the capabilities and/or
preferences of device drivers. Also add two static inline helpers
for setting that field and testing it against a given set of flags
and make the driver core clear it automatically on driver remove
and probe failures.
Define and document two PM driver flags related to the direct-
complete feature: NEVER_SKIP and SMART_PREPARE that can be used,
respectively, to indicate to the PM core that the direct-complete
mechanism should never be used for the device and to inform the
middle layer code (bus types, PM domains etc) that it can only
request the PM core to use the direct-complete mechanism for
the device (by returning a positive value from its ->prepare
callback) if it also has been requested by the driver.
While at it, make the core check pm_runtime_suspended() when
setting power.direct_complete so that it doesn't need to be
checked by ->prepare callbacks.

Interestingly, this commit seems to also affect my wifi. I.e. the good commits (from the susped pov) do not have working wifi, while bad commits have working wifi.
I investigated the commit a bit more, and found that the following patch (which reverts part of said commit) repairs resuming.
I can't tell the consequences, however reading the commit message suggests this part is non-critical:

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 199609 ***
This is not the same as bug 199609 I'm afraid. This bug describes a behavior where the very first resume.
However, if I make a fix (I'll post it later this day hopefully) for this bug, then I start seeing bug 199609 too.
In fact, amdgpu developers asked me to file a bug report against the kernel while bug 199609 was moved to amdgpu.
It looks like some pci devices(graphic) are not safe to be kept in runtime suspended when doing suspend/resume.
Add Rafael too.
Not necessarily, I'd say. Using the attached patch (I posted this to linux-pm, too). Makes it work.
Also, I think it's another dev that affects amdgpu somehow, restricting the above patch to amdgpu-bound devices does not fix the issue.

Patch making resume work
This is a good finding, thanks!
The problem is, though, that the change in comment #5 should not affect any functionality in theory.
What is does is to prevent the initial value of power.direct_complete from depending on the pm_runtime_suspended(dev) return value at the time of its evaluation, which is in device_prepare(). However, later on, __device_suspend() will evaluate pm_runtime_status_suspended(dev) and it will clear power.direct_complete if that returns "false" without invoking any callbacks. Moreover, it will clear power.direct_complete for the device's parent and suppliers in that case.
Now, the execution of device_prepare() takes place in the parents-first order, whereas the execution of __device_suspend() occurs in the children-first order, so no PM callbacks should be executed for the device itself and its parent, and any of its suppliers before setting power.direct_complete in device_prepare() and clearing it in __device_suspend() if the device is not runtime-suspended at that point.
Overall, the patch from comment #5 simply removes an optimization and while it can be applied in principle, it would be good to understand why it helps in the first place.

PM / core: Make direct_complete depend on pm_runtime_enabled() initially
Please check if this patch is still sufficient to make the resume work on your system.
Huge thanks for your efforts. Your explaination sheds some light to this (for me anyway) Unfortunately, your proposed patch in comment #7 does not make resume work on my system.

But that confirms my suspicion. :-)
What appears to be happening is that there is a device in your system with runtime PM disabled and with runtime PM status set to "suspended". If you remove the pm_runtime_enabled() component from the initial value of power.direct_complete for that device (which also effectively happens in the patch from comment #5), power.direct_complete will be set from it and that will effectively prevent any suspend/resume callbacks from being invoked for it and the device will stay functional throughout the suspend. It will not resume properly, but that may not be a problem if it hasn't suspended in the first place.
Now, amdgpu probably depends on that device in some way, so keeping that device alive throughout the cycle makes amdgpu happy. This likely means that amdgpu has an ordering issue exposed by the core change you've found.
Of course, setting power.direct_complete for devices with runtime PM disabled doesn't make any sense whatever, so the underlying bug needs to be fixed, so we'll need to find the offending device and deal with it.
I'll cut a patch for that in the next couple of days, but you may try to do it yourself now that you know what to look for. :-)

PM / core: Debug devices with direct_complete set and runtime PM disabled
Something like this.
It makes the change made by the patch from comment #5, but in addition to that it prints messages for devices having power.direct_complete set and runtime PM disabled (that should never happen) and aborts suspend in the next phase if at least one device like that is found.
Please apply and try to suspend. The suspend should be aborted (if I'm not mistaken), so attach a dmesg log generated after that.
Created attachment 276075 [details]
Here's the output. Please note for how many devices your debug statement is printed, even though it shouldn't happen.
Created attachment 276081 [details]
PM / core: Debug devices with direct_complete set and runtime PM disabled
The majority of these devices don't have any PM callbacks, however, so it actually is safe to set direct_complete for them even without enabled runtime PM.
Please test this patch the same as the previous one.
Created attachment 276109 [details]
Hm, with that patch no debug message is printed. I understand that this is not your expectation?
In contrast do your previous patch, suspend was *not* aborted with this one and resume works (i guess it shouldn't be since my patch is included and no dev seems to match the criteria)

It is one of the outcomes I took into consideration. :-)

OK, so it looks like something depends on a device without PM callbacks. Interesting ...

PM / core: Set direct_complete for devices without PM callbacks
Please test this patch.
It should fix the resume issue for you and also it restores the direct_complete optimization for parents of devices without PM callbacks.
Indeed, your patch lets resume work. Thanks! \o/
