It seems that this breaks on (at least) imx6qdl-sabreauto. The relevant
section of the boot log looks like this:

imx-drm display-subsystem: bound imx-ipuv3-crtc.2 (ops ipu_crtc_ops)
imx-drm display-subsystem: bound imx-ipuv3-crtc.3 (ops ipu_crtc_ops)
dwhdmi-imx 120000.hdmi: Detected HDMI TX controller v1.31a with HDCP
dwhdmi-imx 120000.hdmi: registered DesignWare HDMI I2C bus driver
imx-drm display-subsystem: bound 120000.hdmi (ops dw_hdmi_imx_ops)
imx-drm display-subsystem: failed to bind 2000000.aips-bus:ldb (ops
imx_ldb_ops): -19
imx-drm display-subsystem: master bind failed: -19

It seems that imx6qdl-sabreauto does not have any panel defined in dts.
This used to be ignored when of_graph_get_endpoint_by_regs returned
NULL but now drm_of_find_panel_or_bridge returns -ENODEV and this
causes imx_ldb_bind to fail altogether. Defining a panel works
(including showing stuff on a LVDS panel). Ignoring -ENODEV also fixes

I don't know much about drm and it's not clear if failing to find a
panel should be an error here or not and the hack above is likely the
wrong way to handle it anyway.

I was bisecting the fact that suspend now breaks on upstream. The fact
that a probe error later breaks suspend is possibly an unrelated issue,
