I had vesafb and suspend/resume working for -test7.  When I upgraded to
-test8, It will suspend, but the screen turns to hash.  This was the
same behavior I had with 2.4.22-ac4 and stock RH9, and it was fixed when
I upgraded to the XFree86 rpm's from Fedora (severn).

Now that they're back, I'm a bit clueless again, although I might have
to try XF86 from CVS.

However, -test8 fixed the cpudynd problem where it couldn't write to
/proc/cpufreq, so that was a plus.

Any clues?
