    I admit I quite like this solution. It would also help displaying
    something sane (blank, pattern, whatever) on screen during driver
    teardown instead of the junk left by X...

    I'll look into including that switch into my pmac code as well
    and see if it works properly in all cases (I think so). Also,
    recent DRI CVS finally has working suspend/resume (works on
    console switch too).

    Ben.
