This seems to be a definite problem in 2.4.19. See my mail to this list:
I moved back to 2.4.18 and the machine correctly resumes (still
sometimes waiting for the "irq lost on hda" but always coming back).
It seems in 2.4.19 it never recovers from the lost irq and the disk
never spins up. After which a hard reset is required.
