I wonder if this is the real problem...  This patch introduced an issue
that was fixed by 06891e27a9b5dba5268bb80e41a283f51335afe7 that could
cause a blank screen on lid open or resume, depending on how lid events
were delivered.  Should be easy enough to test though, you can remove
the whole

+       if (acpi_lid_open())
+               drm_helper_resume_force_mode(dev);

block and see if that also helps (in the current tree there's a lock
taken around the force_mode call, you'll need to remove those lines too
for testing).
