    Not quite the case

    fbcon already handles this on the PPC, 68K and soon the ARM platform
    the sparc code handles this on the sparc (and needs moving to fbcon)

    Its just these funny intel boxes that need moving to some kind of fbcon/kgi
    combo. fbcon does all the framebuffer, kgi has the loadable pc
    style drivers and some work on acceleration that is going to go somewhere
    good whatever shape it ends up in. The combination of the lot once figured
    will be real nice for everyone
