Yes. This caused a permenant black screen. fbset did not give me anything

I did, but that caused it to give a blank screen until I changed VTs.
I removed both vesafb and vga16 and recompiled to achive the result I stated

I'll try 2.6.0-test2 later on today. I did not do a make clean between
compiles. When I compile test2, it will be clean, I never patch dirty
