Updated several packages and I'm still seeing the problem. Log output has changed, though. Hundreds of lines of this:
[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.
I actually have the intel Xorg driver working at the moment, but Jeremy says that it can't handle a suspend/resume cycle.
For me, I can't only get the intel driver working if I run the vesa driver, edit xorg.conf and restart X. On reboot with the intel driver, I just get a black screen.
When I does work, suspend/resume nearly works. It resumes, and X pops up enough that I can see and move the pointer a bit, then it crashes shortly after.
This is with kernel-2.6.27-0.391.rc8.git7.fc10.x86_64, xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.4.2-9.fc10.x86_64
This has every sign of a kernel bug. The intel driver works for me if I disable acceleration in xorg.conf, but freezes otherwise.
Are there bad GEM bits in the current patched rawhide kernel?
Looks like one or both of these fixed it:
