I don't know.  I used the vanilla sources and the patches applied
cleanly.  The main thing I have needed previously from the Debian
patches were the cramfs (compressed ram filesystem) patches.  But
those are now in the vanilla kernel.  So I just used those sources and
did have not tried the Debian kernel.

Not knowing I cannot say.  You could try it and report the result.
There are a number of Debian patches.  It all depends on if there is
an overlap between a Debian patch and the swsusp2 patches that creates
a conflict or not.
