SubjectRe: [PATCH] console palette fix

Hi James,

Linus is not the maintainer of the 2.2.* kernels, Alan Cox is (see CC).
Although this patch is correct, and was accepted in 2.4.*, it creates a
secondary problem after applying it - A dark textmode console for some
cards, unrelated to the frame buffer mode. An *additional* patch is needed
in order to fix it:
