I think #2 and #4 are variations on the same issue, and only affect vt_vga as far as I know. Can you submit a PR for that issue, and one for #3? _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
