Well, the DMI whitelist is based on the s2ram whitelist. We're hoping to
standardise on XML descriptions for both s2ram and HAL.

Yes we can, as we can match the driver in the HAL fdi.  As for the other
stuff, I don't know. We can tweak this stuff easily with a hal-info

Well, all this is very new. The very least we will achieve is to get
screens to turn back on when they come back from suspend, i.e. to DPMS
on where needed, and to poke vbetool and restore vbestate. Some other
odd quirks like radeontool are present, but completely untested.
