    Well, maybe that it is just me, but I can say something, I think
    that we should left this code here for whole 2.4.x, as I still sometime
    run 2.3.x together with 2.2.x and unless I switch to devfs, I must
    have /dev/fb1 pointing to 29,32; but to 29,1 for 2.[34].x. I think
    that it is unacceptable.
    I think that we should revert all fbcon/fbmem changes that went into
    2.3.51 (video= -> fbcon=; change in initialization order (white
    square on matroxfb); video4linux (in)compatibility). I received
    couple of bugreports on these topics during weekend :-(
    Best regards,
    Petr Vandrovec
