SubjectExperiencing freezes with kernel 4.16.3 on a desktop with E5500 CPU (bisect included)

I'm currently experiencing freezes after resuming from suspend when
using various applications on my desktop.

For example, when using Firefox and switching between tabs the screen
would freeze, allowing me to only move the mouse pointer but focusing
the mouse pointer on a application won't have any effect.

The keyboard would still work and the only way to make the issue go
away would be to switch to a virtual desktop and then switch back,
then I'd be able to use the mouse again until the same problem

This never happened before upgrading to 4.16.3 and 4.15.18 is unaffected.

The problem only happens *after* resuming from suspend, in normal S0
state it never happens.

My machine is a desktop and has a dual core E5500 CPU with 2GB of RAM,
I run Arch Linux and I use the i3wm.

I don't think it's a problem with user space because I run exactly the
same Arch Linux setup on my T450 and the issue can't be reproduced on
that machine.

I did a bisect and the cause of the bug seems to be this commit:

aa83c45762a242acce9b35020363225a7b59d7c9 is the first bad commit

Here is the bisect log:

Current git HEAD is also affected.

I already tried HEAD with that commit reverted and the problem can't
be reproduced anymore.

Please let me know if I can include more info, thanks in advance.
