It now comes back at resume time.

But suffers long delays (also sometimes with 2.6.35) doing this:

[drm:atom_op_jump] *ERROR* atombios stuck in loop for more than 5secs aborting
[drm:atom_execute_table_locked] *ERROR* atombios stuck executing E576 (len 105,
WS 12, PS 8) @ 0xE5C4
[drm:atom_op_jump] *ERROR* atombios stuck in loop for more than 5secs aborting

PM: resume of devices complete after 15718.253 msecs

So I did this (local hack only, obviously NOT for mainline) to work around that
issue:
