I don't think so. The problem below occurs as a result of fbdev
suspending and shows up after resume. My problem is when the screen
blanks after being idle for a while, and doing suspend/resume fixes
it. Also, I don't use fbdev, because I don't get a working display at
all with it.
That said, I can pull down this kernel and give it a try.
