Rejected. I have put thought into it and the whole point was to not allow
the fbdev layer to touch console data. I stand firm on this!!! The reason
being is the core console layer is going to change the next development
cycle. We have to change to deal with things like the PC9800 type hardware
that support more than 512 fonts. Do we realy want to break every fbdev
driver again. This way the breakage is once and for all. Its is also a
pandoras box. If we place these hooks in we end up with the same crappy
driver problem we had before. I never heard anyone every say the old api
we clean.
