I know. The problem was that I didn't know if this was due to the drm,
video, acpi or x86... so it seems that is quite restricted now.

To resume (see )

- VT switching is broken after gnome has started (acceleration?)

- the symptom is that the X VT stays black, which just the cursor (and
sometime some residual bit of the panel) shown.

- it happens almost all the time with suspend/resume

- sometime you can kill the X server with ctrl-alt-backspace, sometime
you have to reboot.

My (painful) bisect stopped here:

bad d9c04d678418fe42646de641f499209ca00fd94f

but then 2c14f28be2a3f2a2e9861b156d64fbe2bc7000c3 makes my laptop oops on boot.
