Hello hackers!

Here is link to the patch[1] for vidcontrol that makes it to know if it
run w/ or w/o vt(4) and if vt(4) is present, then:
1. screen map feature disabled (vt(4) use Unicode, so screen map not
2. enable to load fornt from /usr/share/vt/fonts/ dir. PLease put
"gallant" font[2] to /usr/share/vt/fonts/.

Looks like it works fine, but maybe I forgot something :)
So please test it in your own environment.

Big thanks to Ed for preparing that font file!

I applied this patch on a 10.0-STABLE r264390 with a Radeon Mobility X300 (M22)
5460, and DRM2.

I could load an home made terminus 16x32 font (my eyes are too old to work with
a 8x16 font on a 1920x1200 17" screen), by

- looping on each ttyvN in a rc.local script


- adding allscreens_flags="-f terminus-u32" to rc.conf (for /etc/rc.d/syscons

I just discovered than scrolling back in console mode works ONLY on ttyv0.

What I have to do to get scrolling on every ttyvN ?

The only way to get the system working in normal VGA mode (640x480) (not loading
the drm2 and radeon kms modules by loader.conf) is by configuring the BIOS to
not do display expansion - which leads to the same ridiculously small font..

And of course, kbdmux keeps being mandatory to be able to load a keymap.
