Ouch, I just had a nasty run-in with the aftereffects of this bug.
After a failed resume, there was no swap, but I didn't fix the swap
partition, I just left it alone.  After another reboot, the kernel
*did* resume using the image in swap, but that was after using the
system for a while.  This naturally resulted in extensive fs
corruption because of the unmounted fs data in the swsusp image, but
luckily, it mostly only affected some log files.  (Another testament
to Linux and FOSS; something similar on Windows would have probably
resulted in reinstalling the OS).  It took several manual fsck's but
it got fixed and is ok now.

I will try the patch now and let you know how it goes.
