Just wanted to report that these patches lead to progress on my T41p;
relevant lspci -vvv:

0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M10 NT [FireGL Mobility T2] (rev 80) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 054f
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B+
Status: Cap+ 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 66 (2000ns min), Cache Line Size: 0x08 (32 bytes)
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 11
Region 0: Memory at e0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
Region 1: I/O ports at 3000 [size=256]
Region 2: Memory at c0100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
Capabilities: <available only to root>

In 2.6.13-rc7 or 2.6.13-rc6-mm2, after echo mem > /sys/power/state, the
lcd light comes back, but no video is actually displayed (I just notice
that the backlight turns on). With your patches, I now see (with either
rc7 or rc6-mm2) a mostly black screen with "inux" in the upper left --
basically a garbled console -- which slowly turns completely white.

If you would like me to do more debugging, I would be more than happy to
do so.

Thanks for the work so far,
