  Can't suspend on Surface Pro 3

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  With my Surface Pro 3 when I suspend from the GUI nothing happens. Doing it manually also fails, and nothing appears in dmesg:
  #echo "mem" > /sys/power/state

  Error while writing to stdout
  write_loop: Invalid argument

  And, more interestingly:
  cat /sys/power/state

  freeze disk

  Using the not-so-good-and-apparently-unsupported:
  echo "freeze" > /sys/power/state

  does seem to successfully suspend, however I cannot resume from this
  (assumed to be a separate issue).

  I am using a modified utopic unicorn kernel compiled from git at kernel.ubuntu.com, with the following patch to enable mykeyboard to work:

  The official kernel behaves identically, as does vanilla 3.17 from the
  mainline folder of kernel-ppa.

  WORKAROUND: Use hibernate.
