This time I was able to dump process states with sysrq-t:

My guess is ide2/2.0 dies (hpt370 driver), since last thing kernel prints is suspending device 2.0
Does it go away if you revert this?

That should only affect resume, not suspend, but it does mess around
with ide power management. Is this maybe happening on the *second*

-hdc: ATAPI 63X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
+hdc: ATAPI CD-ROM drive, 0kB Cache, UDMA(33)
This looks suspicious. -mm does have several ide-fix-hpt3xx patches.

I found that git-block.patch broke the suspend for me. Still have no idea
what's up with it.

I suspect elevator changes. The wait_for_completion is not woken in ide-io by ll_rw_blk. But I don't understand block layer too much. Where the blk_end_sync_rq should be called from (why is not called at all)?
