I gave it a try and resume works for me with that sd-resume hook in arch. But I'm not too sure whether fsck is delayed properly:

If I read this correctly, the moment the plaintext device appears, the resume and fsck are racing each other. And in this case,
fsck won (good thing my fsck binaries are not in the systemd initrd for now).
