SubjectSuspend to RAM fault in VT when resuming

I've chased one of the 'Suspend to RAM' resume problems to a specific
line in drivers/char/vt.c, see attached 2.6.21-rc3 diff with
TRACE_RESUME() instrumentation. The macro scr_writew resolves to '*addr
= val', which appears to be causing the problem. I've verified that the
pointer is not NULL, but don't know if its really valid. Its pretty
tough to tell what is happening, but on a Dell XPS it just hangs. A Dell
Precision blinks the keyboard lights.

Since I don't know anything about video programming, I though perhaps
you might have an opinion.
