I'm not able to get through Linus's mail filters for past three weeks.

What means this? No useful data here... Oopses? Reboot?
Endless loop? And did you built vgacon into the kernel? And I'm
not sure that 2.6.0 can have both vesafb & matroxfb compiled in (well,
you can compile in both, but I'm not sure what happens).

And from your message above it looks like that you are building some
vital matroxfb portions as a module. Please build them into the kernel
unless you are really sure that you do not want console on them - while
2.4.x's console could use modular fbdevs, 2.6.x's console subsytem
cannot do that.

You can also try
(if 2.6.0-test2-mm5 does not complain about unexported matrox_*_irq
it will probably not apply cleanly to it). It restores fbcon subsystem
to the 2.4.x's version.
