vbetool: A tool to run real-mode video BIOS code to alter hardware state1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0]

Vbetool uses lrmi in order to run code from the video BIOS. Currently, it is able to alter DPMS states, save/restore video card state, and attempt to initialize the video card from scratch. It exists primarily in order to increase the chances of successfully recovering video state after an ACPI S3 suspend.
