    I tested this, it needs some tweaks to compile:
    - seems like con_init() int drivers/char/console.c should return
    unsigned long rather than void. This also affect one return statement in
    the function.

    - the no_scroll command line parameter and its function is only
    implemented for vgacon, and should be dependent on CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE
    (in init/main.c).

    Once booted (with vgafb) I still have a version of the black-on-black
    problem. Kernel console messages appear right, but any output though
    the tty seems to be written with the current background color. But if I
    switch to another VC and then back the screen content is updated and
    appears correct, but any updates while focused only affects the cursor
    position.
