This patch merges the fb_powerup and fb_powerdown hooks in a single

No, please don't. Having int with 0/3 being valid specifying what to
do is evil.

enum is less evil, but what's wrong about having 3 functions?
Later on, the patch was reworked by Jordan Crouse to use
the fb_blank hook instead, which already has enough states.

So the fb_powerup/fb_powerdown hooks, which were not yet
upstream anyway, died off in the process.
