            Bug ID: 212822
           Summary: Cannot set console font on FreeBSD 11.0-RC3
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-RC1
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

Hello.

On FreeBSD 11.0-RC3 I'm not able to set console fonts anymore while I was able
to do so on 10.3 with vt driver.

# vidcontrol -f vgarom-8x14     - works fine on FreeBSD 10.3 and changes the
fonts

# vidcontrol -f vgarom-8x14     - doesn't work on FreeBSD 11.0-RC3
PIO_VFONT: Operation not supported
vidcontrol: failed to load font "vgarom-8x14": Operation not supported

I'm experimenting inside VirtualBox 5.0.0

Also for some reason FreeBSD 10.3 uses higher console resolution, while
11.0-RC3 uses only test mode:
# dmesg | grep VT              - FreeBSD 10.3
VT(vga): resolution 640x480

# dmesg | grep VT              - FreeBSD 11.0-RC3
VT(vga): text 80x25

Also for some reason FreeBSD 10.3 uses terminus like console font by default, 
while 11.0-RC3 uses font vga 8x16 or resembling.
