This slowness only happens when I run the kernel with no_console_suspend
parameter (e.g. to debug some suspend/resume issue).
This probably means that in this case radeon's PCI config recorded during
suspend and restored during early resume is all but appropriate...

Currently drm/radeon does not suspend when no_console_suspend is provided,
even so when the kernel logging does not happen on tty0 & co.

e.g. I would expect that a kernel run with
no_console_suspend console=ttyS0
would just skip suspending serial port ttyS0 and not also skip suspending
KMS framebuffer as it currently does.

In most framebuffer devices I see usage of acquire_console_sem() and
release_console_sem() but except for kernel/printk.c and drivers/serial/
code nothing is considering console_suspend_enabled.

Currently I'm not sure what code path prevents suspend of KMS (at least
for radeon) when no_console_suspend has been passed, this code path should
probably have a conditional just as serial to take no_console_suspend only
if it's running kernel's console itself.
