I've also successfully included that patch in kernel packages I've rebuilt,
and it does enable my display to actually work after resuming. One thing
worth pointing out, and which could favor the inclusion of that patch : I
didn't need to select the radeonfb to be built in, it works as a module as
long as it's also added to the initrd. One drawback though, that I haven't
investigated, is that the console resolution is then the same as without fb
instead of the tiny characters using up the full resolution of the LCD I
got when having radeonfb built-in.

FWIW, I have an Inspiron 8600 with a Radeon 9600 Mobility.
