suspend/resume regression

I think it works on HEAD. I suspended OK and tried to resume. The resume
initiated and my screen came on... only to tell me that da0p2 was not
available. I seem to recall that this was a known issue when running on a
USB attached disk. The failure came much further along than on stable where
it failed immediately with fans turning on, but nothing else happening,
and, if I could connect the disk directly, I suspect it would work.
Unfortunately, I don't have a spare SATA disk... only old PATA drives and
the T520 only takes SATA drives.

Bottom line is that the issue I saw with 10.1-STABLE and 10.1-BETA1 is not
present on HEAD, so this is entirely a regression in STABLE.

I will be updating to BETA2 shortly and I'll report how it works there.
