This started somewhere between Kernel 4.2 and 4.3-rc1,
but I only noticed it a day ago.

The first S3 suspend after a fresh boot works fine.
Thereafter, suspends simply resume again immediately.

I get the following errors on my console:

[  152.697247] i915 0000:00:02.0: GEM idle failed, resume might fail
[  152.697258] pci_pm_suspend(): i915_pm_suspend+0x0/0x50 [i915] returns -11
[  152.697262] dpm_run_callback(): pci_pm_suspend+0x0/0x140 returns -11
[  152.697264] PM: Device 0000:00:02.0 failed to suspend async: error -11
[  152.697306] PM: Some devices failed to suspend, or early wake event detected

The issue is not limited to my normal way of doing suspend, using "pm-suspend".
It also happens using the "echo mem > /sys/power/state" method.

The kernel was bisected, and the result was double checked by clean compiles
of the first bad commit and the immediately preceding commit. Bisect results
copied below:

$ git bisect good

    drm/i915: Add explicit request management to i915_gem_init_hw()

    Now that a single per ring loop is being done for all the different
    intialisation steps in i915_gem_init_hw(), it is possible to add proper request
    management as well. The last remaining issue is that the context enable call
    eventually ends up within *_render_state_init() and this does its own private
    _i915_add_request() call.

    This patch adds explicit request creation and submission to the top level loop
    and removes the add_request() from deep within the sub-functions.

    v2: Updated for removal of batch_obj from add_request call in previous patch.
