You've needed to?

There's no direct equivalent to vbetool post.  KMS drivers handle 
suspend/resume in the kernel.  Some of them have lockup detection and 
have implemented GPU resets internally (which is far more complex than 
vbetool post); others don't and haven't.

I'm curious what you think the use case is.
