the big problem is, that stifb completly ignores sti= from the commandline
and video=map doesn't seem to work (I need to reconfigure a machine to test
that myself, which I hadn't time yet). The best thing would be to use
the console path from pdc, no idea how hard that is.

It's probably not a big deal to use the default sti (sti=) for stifb, but
I'd prefer either a video="???" solution or the pdc console path. If we 
decide on a solution, I'm going to implement it (if nobody else wants
to do it :-)).


Crap can work. Given enough thrust pigs will fly, but it's not necessary a
good idea.                                 [ Alexander Viro on linux-kernel ]
