Oops. Have you tried Option "crt_screen"? I assume the atimisc options are
documented somewhere besides the code, but I must confess I don't know where -
I remember something about a README though.

Of course, this as well as sleep support would be better if the atimisc driver
supported fbdevHW. Let's hope I or anybody will manage to get generic fbdevHW
support for all drivers in for 4.2 or whenever.
