    I tried using it on pmac, but it causes hell with XFree. I'm not sure
    what's up yet, I suspect it may be XFree still doing things after
    calling the RELDISP ioctl but I'm not completely sure yet.

    The setup XFree + DRI is working without switching to suspend console
    (with only the apm_bios emulation for XFree to suspend/restore itself)
    but not when switching to suspend console right before doing the apm
    emulation callbacks (which should be ignored by X since it's no longer
    the frontmost process at this point).

    For some reason, it seems that after we have switched to the suspend
    console, we race with the X server on accel engine, and on resume, the X
    server just crashes.
