    Well, before the patch is ever concidered for the mainline I think
    the issue with acquire_console_sem() causing the resume process to
    stop and wait for a key press would have to be addressed.

    This option could be listed for more notebooks with radeon cards,
    for example mine is an Dell Inspiron 8500.
