Yes, it does exactly that.
I'm in the process of using the uswsusp infrastructure to make sure that
the workarounds run before the rest of the userspace is restarted which
will make those ugly hacks much more reliable (they get virtually "closer
into the kernel") which you cannot do with lots of vbetool calls.

Another advantage is, that you do not get dependencies on lots of utilities
but only one.

Note that i am not advocating to use s2ram's whitelist feature but only its
vbetool-radeontool-pci_save... integration.
