OK I cannot reproduce the issue with the modified patch I sent to
test_firmware, which if you enable config_enable_resume_test will
trigger a request_firmware() on resume, thus trying to mimic the race
you note. To test this you can simply use a loopback filesystem for
your /lib/firmware and create a btrfs filesystem for it, and then run:

echo 1 > /sys/devices/virtual/misc/test_firmware/config_enable_resume_test

systemctl suspend

Then resume. You should see "resume test" print on dmesg. I keep my
/lib/firmware/ empty and still, nothing. Can you provide kernel logs
for where you are seeing things get stuck at? Note that I had
mentioned the races on suspend/resume do exist for any journaling
filesystem, but this typically happens if you are doing ongoing
writes. I suppose you are *not* doing writes and your filesystem is

As such without kernel logs I cannot be sure what the issue is, but at
this point after the initial testing I've done I don't suspect this is
a firmware API issue. You might be better off just reposting your
patches with the respective Reviewed-by tags and pestering your

PS. If you want to test this on a guest you bring the guest back up
with virsh dompmwakeup.
