I've done some investigation of the above log output:
1) Small introduction first: commit 013c074f8642 was created, because it was identified
that it's unsafe to bind/probe drivers during suspend resume, mainly because this will
cause changing of pointers on PM data structures on the fly for devices which already
tracked by Suspend core.

2) above log prints can be generated by the below call chain (I've checked the code only):

- serio_queue_event(serio, NULL, SERIO_RECONNECT_PORT)
- queue_work(system_long_wq, &serio_event_work);
- serio_handle_event()
- serio_reconnect_port()
- serio_reconnect_driver() --- return <0

- serio_disconnect_port()
- device_release_driver() --- unbind
- serio_find_driver()
error = device_attach(&serio->dev);
if (error < 0)
"device_attach() failed for %s (%s), error: %d\n",
serio->phys, serio->name, error);

device_attach() will return -EPROBE_DEFER(-517) because the device probing is not allowed yet.

As per my understanding (and it's not clear from issue description), above situation
should not break functionality of the system - just device's probe will be delayed till the
end of dpm_complete(). So, I propose consider the option - do not print above warnings if
return code from device_attach() is -EPROBE_DEFER.
