After few suspend/resume cycles one of my hdd disappears from the list of devices, here is part of dmesg output that seems to be related to issue:

[  450.005310] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Starting disk
[  451.754602] ata6.00: detaching (SCSI 5:0:0:0)
[  451.755862] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Stopping disk
[  451.993621] ata6: SATA link up 6.0 Gbps (SStatus 133 SControl 300)
[  451.993682] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Start/Stop Unit failed: Result: hostbyte=0x04 driverbyte=0x00

Device itself should be fine, Ubuntu worked there for few weeks, problem occurred after installing Gentoo on other drive and using this as a storage. Looks like there is some timeout in the kernel for device init process and it's just not enough for this slow disk.

Issue was reproduced with 2 different kernels: 4.1.15, 4.4.1 built from gentoo-sources package.
Linux distribuion: Gentoo

Update:

Tried rescan after losing disk with

echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host5/scan 

And my disk is back again

[ 1518.175497] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk

So at least I have workaround, still hope to find a better soluiton.

I don't know what magic patches are used in ubuntu kernel (or maybe it something in gentoo-sources, or my kernel config was a problem), but my problem disappeared after switching to ubuntu 16.04 (kernel 4.4.0-11-generic).
