I will submit a separate report to mobile@freebsd and focus on suspend/resume
issues in this thread or at least a cleaner dmesg.

Ugh, that makes it a good bit harder to debug. You can try removing as
many drivers from your kernel as you can while still having a functional
system (so no networking, etc.). Then see if that can resume in single
user. If it does, then you can start adding back in drivers to narrow
down one that causes the hang. You can also try setting the
'hw.acpi.reset_video' sysctl to see if that helps your screen come back
on during resume.
