  vbetool breaks resume on R50e

Status in “acpi-support” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “vbetool” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My machine: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/ThinkpadR50e

  Suspending results in a suspended machine with the blinking moon
  symbol first, and the LED light if the machine has suspended. No
  problem here.

  On resume, the moon keeps on blinking, but never stops. There is some
  HDD activity  (a very short flackering every few seconds), but nothing
  more. Switching VTs doesn't work. I can however use the MagicSysRQ
  reboot the machine.

  disabling vbetool by setting POST_VIDEO=false in /etc/default/acpi-support AND using the VBERestore option of the i810 xorg driver makes the machine suspend/resume as normal.
