    After looking at vfb.c again, it seems the default is for vfb to be
    enabled and you have to actively disable vfb either with

    video=vfb:disable or video=vfb:off

    I have to change this behavior. In the meantime, try one of the above

    (I was also under the impression that vfb must be explicitly enabled
    with a boot option...I remember now, the option vfb_enable defaults to
    false when compiled as a module, and to true if compiled statically.)
