    2.6.0-test1-mm1, Dell C840 laptop with a Geforce4 440Go.

    I do *NOT* have 'CONFIG_FB_VGA16' set, but *do* have 'CONFIG_VIDEO_VESA'.

    With this, 'vga=794' gets me a small font and a penguin on boot,
    the NVidia binary driver works fine under X after the patch,
    switching back and forth works well, and life is generally good.

    Mode 792 is in the VESA bios mode range: from Documentation/svga.txt:

    0x0200 to 0x08ff - VESA BIOS modes. The ID is a VESA mode ID increased by
    0x0100. All VESA modes should be autodetected and shown on the menu.
    CONFIG_VIDEO_VESA - enables autodetection of VESA modes. If it doesn't work
    on your machine (or displays a "Error: Scanning of VESA modes failed" message),
    you can switch it off and report as a bug.

    Try turning that on?
