Well - unsure - how this worked ok - for 2.6.37-rc1-00170-gf6614b7 (I
could try few more times - though this kernel seems to be crashing for
various other reasons - so I've had quite few testruns before I've
been able to test this in some very limited X environment - so maybe
it was just some lucky case - but I still keep it on my disk)

Anyway - as an update - I'm now regularly using 2.6.37-rc2 - and it
has exactly same problems - as in my original report - so the problem
has not magically disappeared and it is still there. Is there
anything I should try ?

Basically every time after resume from suspend I have to switch from X
to console and back to get usable screen back. Without this I seen
only black screen with mouse over it - is there some way for reverting
of this patch - or maybe just disabling some part of it ?

To have reliable resume I still have to keep drm_kms_help thread
disable - otherwise I observe GPU errors.
Switch between consoles is 'relatively' easy to overcome.

And another thing which might help - during suspend/resume I could
usually see weird switch to console with some special text on the
whole console screen -

[ ###.... ]
[ ###.... ]

where '###' is some changing number - and it seems to be different
between resumes.
Also I should add I'm using 'no-console-suspend' kernel boot option.
