I'm sorry, debugging that is not easy for me at the moment.

You should be able to build on x86-64 with right .config...

Before bisect, I'd suggest:

a) testing suspend. That should work in 4.13 and 4.14

b) maybe testing with minimal drivers to see if it is one of the
drivers breaking it.

Oh and there's file in Documentation/ describing hibernation
debugging. You should be able to locate bad driver without bisect.
