Please keep in mind the XPS 9360 has a touchpad that can operate in I2C
or PS2 modes. It's connected to both buses and with the right initialization
sequence will come up in I2C mode.
Assuming Paul M. has compiled and used hid-multitouch and i2c-hid the
touchpad should be operating in I2C mode.
When this happens I expect that the touchpad shouldn't be responding
to PS2 commands.
As a debugging tactic, you may consider to unload psmouse before
suspend and still see the touchpad operational.

Does this other laptop you are drawing a comparison to also have a
touchpad that can operate in multiple modes?
To make an accurate comparison you should determine what mode it's in.
