For difference of VRAM mapping, I implemented scr_* function family.
But codes for difference of attribute value remains in mainline sources.
And I need many #if for support japanese character.
How do you think about 2bytes character support?
I think, If kernel suports 2bytes character, many people useing japanese
chinese korean... may be happy.
