Ian and I have just spent some time investigating this.

The failure is that libxl observes a PV guest failing to respond to a
xenstore-based request to suspend, although the guest logs themselves
appear to suggest that the guest is performing correctly.

The identified changeset clearly suggests that this is a toolstack side
behavioural change, although the actual toolstack actions using domctls
appear to be working fine.

However, it is intermittent and appears to be host specific, rather than
consistent across the board.  Also, XenServer has not experienced any
symptoms like this.
