Hm, try booting with drm.debug=0xf to see if link training for the
eDP connector succeeds. If the link cannot be trained, it would
explain that the screen stays black. Should this indeed be the
case, one possible explanation would be that the panel is muxed
to the external port on resume and an appropriate command needs to
be sent to the SMC to switch the mux to the radeon card. This could
be done in the ->resume_early hook of your APP000C platform driver.
The apple-gmux driver contains something similar to power the discrete
GPU down if it was off before suspend (because the BIOS always powers
it up on resume).
Another possible explanation would be that panel power needs to be
enabled by writing to the registers which control the pins mentioned

*shrug* Unfortunately I'm not familiar at all with radeontool. :-(
