Nice catch!

Me neither.
I think a solution like commit b36b242d4b8ea178f7fd038965e3cac7f30c3f09
is sufficient.

Note that i740fb_set_par() is called in i740fb_resume() as well.
Since this doesn't comes form userspace I think adding a check for
the return value there isn't necessary.

Would you mind sending a patch like b36b242d4b8ea178f7fd038965e3cac7f30c3f09 ?
