UPDATING

nono, kernel variable is there and with exactly the same semantics; it is used to control vt vga driver to have either text or gfx (640x480) mode.

the loader FB support did (ab)use hw.vga.textmode to enforce loader to text mode and that behavior is fixed by introducing screen.textmode for loader. That will leave hw.vga.textmode entirely as it was before the loader FB patch.

The loss of screen output is another issue and I plan to get it fixed soon (as I get confirmation if indeed font upload is guilty and disable it for now).

OK. I figured this was intentional.
