I realized that what was farkled was not the kernel itself, but the
initrd. So I made a backup copy of the fallback kernel's initrd. I then
purged the hibernate package. In the process of removing it, apt
created a new initrd -- replacing the farkled one, not the fallback
initrd. So that solved that problem.

I have rebooted to the newer kernel.

I still don't have a menu entry for hibernating, though.
