SubjectRe: fbcon scrolling madness + fbset corruption

This doesn't appear to solve the ywrap problem - I still get
places where the screen doesn't scroll. I decided to write a
small program to dump out the contents of fb_var_screeninfo, and
where stuff goes horribly wrong:

bash-2.04# ./tst
Visible: 1280x1024
Virtual: 1280x1632
BPP : 8
Offset : +0+2352
bash-2.04# ./tst
Visible: 1280x1024
Virtual: 1280x1632
BPP : 8
Offset : +0+2392

Up to the point where it goes wrong:

bash-2.04# ./tst
Visible: 1280x1024
Virtual: 1280x1632
BPP : 8
Offset : +0+528
bash-2.04# ./tst
Visible: 1280x1024
Virtual: 1280x1632
BPP : 8
Offset : +0+568
bash-2.04# ./tst
Visible: 1280x1024 <--- this is the last line on the screen
Virtual: 1280x1632
BPP : 8
Offset : +0+608
bash-2.04#

So it looks like something isn't limiting the yoffset in the generic
console layer; an xoffset of 2392 when the maximum virtual Y is 1632
is just nonsense.

I also noticed an additional problem with fbcon: if I change the
resolution using fbset, the change occurs, except I end up with
corrupted mess on the screen (the reminents of the original display.)
The shell prompt is nowhere to be seen.

Hitting ^L clears the screen and then the shell prompt is visiable.
