After upgrading to linux-5.3.arch1-1 I noticed that S3 suspend would fail to complete, leaving the system powered on, with a blank VT and a flashing cursor in the top-left of the screen. Upon upgrading to linux-5.3.1.arch1-1 suspend now proceeds as expected, however now upon resume the same thing occurs - blank VT with flashing cursor in the top-left of the screen, and the system fails to resume. There is absolutely nothing in the system logs - the logs go straight from "kernel: PM: suspend entry (deep)" to "-- Reboot --", as the only way I can get back into the system is to hard power cycle it.

The 5.2 and prior kernel series worked fine, up to and including linux-5.2.14.arch2-1.

Additional info:
* packages: linux-5.3.1.arch1-1 ; nvidia-435.21-7 ; systemd-243.51-1
* hardware: MSI GS65 Stealth

Steps to reproduce:
- Boot with these software(/hardware?) versions
- Enter suspend
- Resume from suspend
This task depends upon

Can confirm that suspend doesn't resume properly (screen does not turn on at all for me, numlock LED doesn't toggle). It does not happen every time.

I've reproduced this on 5.3.x kernels up to 5.3.4. This is with AMD graphics and an i7-4790K.
