/usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/98smart-kernel-video contains the following line:
grep -q -E '(noveau|drm)fb' /proc/fb || return 1

Which should of course say "nouveau", not "noveau". This causes all the quirks to run when suspending with nouveau KMS, which for me causes a hung, 100% cpu consuming vbetool process on resume.

Additional info:

This is fixed in their latest git (, but not their latest stable version. We should probably patch this.

Steps to reproduce:

Run pm-suspend with nouveau KMS running.
