This is distro-specific stuff, but the problem probably is either that
Fedora like many distros reencrypts swap with a different, random key
at each boot (so the hibernation image will be unreadable) or that the
Fedora initramfs does not luksOpen the partition before it tries to
resume from it, so the resume fails to find the hibernation image. Or
maybe both.

IMHO, you should address this to Fedora to see if the guys there have
a strategy to work for your use case. For my archlinux system I had to
build custom initramfs hooks to luksOpen the swap partitions first.

HTH, Heiko
