Unlikely, I'm afraid. There /is/ a potential mechanism for this - rather 
than using the kernel framebuffer driver, we could do vesa in userspace. 
This has a couple of drawbacks (x86-specific, would probably need 
additional code written in order to support amd64) but would allow 
higher resolutions without being likely to break suspend/resume.
