I have tried both versions of the syscons patch, and it works fine in 
1024x768 (MODE_279), but blanking the screen with green_saver no 
longer works.  The cursor disappears when the screen saver kicks in, but the 
screen doesn't go blank (suspend mode).  When I hit a key to exit 
from the screen saver, the screen momentarily blanks, then comes back 
to life.  I'm using an LCD flat panel.  It still suspends (DMPS 
suspend) when using xscreensaver.

Thanks for everyone's work on this.
