I've been trying to tag bugs with "suspend", "resume", and/or
"hibernate" to help quickly identify bugs which suffer from these
issues. For example, I'll tag a bug with just "suspend"  if it's the
actual suspend process that fails. Or, if it's the resume from suspend
that fails it's tagged both "suspend" and "resume" . apport is also
using these tags when automatically reporting suspend/resume failures.

The bugs tagged "suspend" and "resume"  might give a broad starting
point for identifying bugs to examine. If there is a specific string we
can search for in dmesg output included to a bug report we could also
likely write a launchpadlib  script to help identify this issue. We
could also try to use launchpadlib to search the hwdb for hardware
profiles with affected drivers (you mentioned there were over 100
drivers that could be affected). However, I don't believe the
functionality is implemented which links a hw profile to a bug report,
but there may be a way to work around it. I'd be happy to help write
the launchpadlib scripts if the bugs tagged "suspend" and "resume" are
not useful for this case. Just let me know.
