Interesting! Did you remove the "resume=/..." from the command line,
or the ancient hibernation from the swap partition? If the
hibernation, how did you remove it?
I removed the resume. I didn't think of removing the image from the
swap. This is conjecture, since I haven't done it, but you should be
able to swapoff the swap partition, mkswap the swap partition, and
swapon the partition again. See man swapon.
I don't have the kernel docs handy, but I think the resume parameter is
necessary to reboot from swap. Tim could be right, but I recall that
it was possible to recover from a faulty hibernate image, or skip
it, by removing the resume parameter so that normal boot would take
place. I haven't used hibernate for a long time, so memory only, and
could be wrong.
