I had a look at the Hardy and Intrepid code. For Hardy there is actually
another patch missing which sound like (beside of being an absolute must for
the patch) sounds serious.

Subject: [PATCH] suspend-vs-iommu: prevent suspend if we could not resume

iommu/gart support misses suspend/resume code, which can do bad stuff,
including memory corruption on resume.  Prevent system suspend in case we
would be unable to resume.

Possible suspect https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/236902
but this is just an unverified guess.

The remainder of the patch has to be slightly modified since it depends on
other changes. This is also true for Intrepid. Ben, what would be your favoured
approach: include as many upstream changes or keep the changes minimal?
