First reaction, do you actually *want* a smaller framebuffer (that's
probably scaled as well) or just bigger text size? If the latter, you
can just change the consolefont.

Although the fbset man page says it's outdated, the resolution options
are still valid, at least on my Intel framebuffer and Broadcom
framebuffer (raspberry pi). Try specifying the resolution with -xres and
-yres. Your screen may not scale along with your specified resolution,
however, ie the framebuffer may end up displaying on only a portion of
your screen.
