There's a whole pile of power management stuff for ancient laptops that
never quite made it from radeonfb to the radeon DRM driver... sadly it
also prevents sleep on old PowerBooks but I haven't had many complaints

The code for D2 and D3 on those old things is reasonably self
contained, it shouldn't be that hard to move it over I suppose.
