Mmmm... Now that 2.6.25-rc* is usable here, there's another symptom
that's been happening regularly enough that it's got to be a regression
of some sort.

This machine has an ATI X1400 video card, which doesn't work with any
open source X server that I know of. Maybe latest RadeonHD would work
but it didn't when I tried it in January.

So I'm using the ATI binary fglrx X server, but without their kernel module,
so no 3D acceleration (fine.. only affects Google Earth, really).

Now.. on 2.6.25, after a suspend/resume cycle (or three), the framebuffer
frequently starts going wonky. "snowy" pixels appear, and stay.
Just a moment ago here, the entire background changed to zebra stripes.

And so on.. Peculiar stuff.

I'm wondering if something to do with video mode switching,
or video register save/restore, has changed since 2.6.24.
Because it's broken in 2.6.25, yet works fine in all earlier kernels.
