    Not if you want video to come back on most hardware - the kernel has no
    idea how to reinitialise your graphics card. s2ram and similar tools
    attempt to deal with this by reprogramming it from userspace. On the
    other hand, if it did work on the same hardware with earlier kernels,
    then that's a bug.
