I pulled a giant pile of KMS bugfixes into 2.6.2, so I'm not sure about
2.6.1.

We've still got some work to do with making our suspend/resume path
really complete for KMS. We're missing some register setup that UMS
does, so behavior can be a bit random. The current plan is to switch to
using the KMS modeset paths for resume, so we hopefully have reliable
(or at least consistent) mode setting behavior, and then fill those
remaining register writes in around it. Basically, a separate
suspend/resume path for KMS, when we have full control of the device.
