surprisingly, these two snippets are directly related.

the failure of suspend/release in this distro seems to be
directly related to the absence of a getty on the serial console. 
if the getty is present, everything works normally.  if the getty
is absent, the system won't resume.

i'll poke at it a little more, but i've spent too much time on
this today, so i'm really hoping someone else will understand
what's going on.

(i've verified on my own laptop that disabling the getty causes
the same resume failure.)
