Since you moved screen_info.capabilities forward by 2 bytes, you must
also tell video.S where to poke for the new location, otherwise, vesafb
(which uses the capabilities field) will get confused.

These are the values for the unadjusted and adjusted PARAM_CAPABILITIES:
(The latter one is correct).

capabilities: 746f0000
capabilities: 1
