I've used extended version of similar script, with PXE, compilation done on
separate machine and automatically collecting test results - suitable to use
with "git bisect run".

It mainly does:
1. xen-compile.sh compiles the hypervisor and place it in TFTP accessible
directory; then signal test machine to reboot (assuming there is autotest2.sh
script running).
2. Test machine starts from PXE (using above hypervisor), then automatically
(rc.local) launch autotest2.sh.
3. The script checks for testrun kernel parameter (if missing - abort test -
this is the way to easily get system to normal); then run test.sh to check
system state before suspend (just to be sure)
4. Then schedule wakeup using rtcwake (here Ben's method is simpler) and go
into sleep using pm-suspend util (can be also changed to direct sysfs write,
as in Ben's script)
5. After resume it check system state (test.sh again) and send result back to
compile host using netcat.
5a. If system rebooted during suspend/resume this is also detected by presence
of flag file, and also reported to compile host.
6. Test can be automatically repeated (eg. require 3 consecutive successful
7. After the test (regardless of result) wait for next reboot signal to test
another revision.

Some unsolved problem is what to do if network isn't working after resume.
I've tried some workarounds like module reload, but it isn't always enough. I
was thinking about some other communication media like serial console, but
didn't implemented it.

Scripts are written for my setup, so some paths and parameters may needs
adjustment. I've already removed Qubes-specific parts (hope didn't break
anything). Attached files:
1. xen-compile.sh - script to use on compile host/PXE server; this script
should be called from xen working directory, can be directly used as bisect
run script.
2. xen-debug - PXE configuration, place in /var/lib/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ (or
whatever location is used by TFTP server); you can either rename this file to
"default" to be used by all hosts, or make symlinks for individual machines
(my case - see below); you also need update kernel parameters there -
especially root=

3. autotest2.sh - place in /root/s3-debug on test hardware; add it to rc.local
4. test.sh - place in /root/s3-debug on test hardware - this script should
test after resume if everything is ok - most likely you need update this
script for currently investigated problem; attached version checks for
presence of C3 ACPI c-state (problem described in "High CPU temp, suspend
problem - xen 4.1.5-pre, linux 3.7.x" thread)

Additionally some files from syslinux are needed (pxelinux.0, mboot.32). And
of course DHCP and TFTP services set accordingly.
