Comment(by greenfeld):

 In general a XO-1 with 12.1.0 os16 with an open file or directory handle
 on an external SD card's partition will fail to remount said partition
 after a suspend/resume cycle.  The XO-1 tries to do a full unmount/remount
 cycle on the external SD card's partition(s) and fails.

 The kernel will dump a backtrace complaining about trying to duplicate a
 resource, presumably trying to remount in the same place as the open file
 handle.  The swap partition case probably is just a variant of this.

 If no file handle is open on a external SD card's partition then the
 remount occurs successfully.

 A XO-1.5 can suspend and resume with an open file handle on the external
 SD card, and the XO-1.5 can also boot off of said external SD card.

 I do not know how to configure this build to boot off an external SD card
 for XO-1.

 Also see #11751, #11980.
