Bug#169308: xserver-xfree86: LCD blanks and won't unblank -> kernel bug?

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.
