OK, I found the reboot bug:
is called in two different places. This corrupts syscore_ops_list and
causes syscore_shutdown() to enter an infinite loop.
The fix is to remove the extra call added since 3.2:

.suspend = pxa_gpio_suspend,
.resume = pxa_gpio_resume,
-static int __init pxa_gpio_sysinit(void)
- return 0;
The suspend bug is alas unrelated.
