I've investigated a little more.

The good news is that I can get reliable resuming by using the
"nomodeset" boot parameter to disable kernel mode setting (so perhaps
kernel bug #13811 is not as "fixed" as we'd like to think?)

The bad news is that this is not a useful workaround, because the
version of the xf86 Intel video driver that has recently been marked
stable in Gentoo refuses to work without kernel mode setting. And I
can't just downgrade the video driver, because it's so thoroughly
integrated with the rest of Xorg. Any ideas, please?
