Bug Description

* Some images fail to resume

[ Test Case ]
* install 18.04 in virtualbox
* start vm
* stop vm, with save state
* start vm -> result: crash

[Regression Potential]
* Really low, this one line patch comes from upstream

other linux based images like mate16.04 also fail to resume properly. windows 10 images resume ok.

running in the client VM:

dist-upgrade, removing vbox related kernel modules, update-initramfs -c

does not fix the problem.
