Yes and I do not even think it will be too hard to do.

The KGI guys have a lot of nice drivers for various PC chipsets, we
have the glue code to bind it to the console and let it work with both
VGA-style text consoles and framebuffer consoles which are needed on
some architectures. fbcon[1] may need some changes, but the concept is
quite flexible and I belive we can be made to work in a way that will
suit all of us.

[1]: abscon in fact, fbcon is the framebuffer console code whereas
abscon stands for abstract console.
