Subjectbroken console fails vttest

Besides the obviously dead stuff (wide, 132 col, underline, vt52)
there were several failures. Mostly we have scrolling trouble.
I ran the test on a plain VGA console. I think I remember reporting
the same scrolling trouble back in the 2.0 series, so this could
be another post-fb bug.

Results of "vttest 25x80.80" on an 80x25 Linux 2.2.0-pre7 console:
