    Strange. It works okay here (thinkpad x32, configured SMP), but
    something strange is going on with cursor. I use softcursor (normal
    underline but highlight background), and underline no longer blinks
    over it.


    echo -e "\33[10;5000]\33[11;50]\33[?18;0;136c\33[?102m"

    on vanilla and no-idle-hz kernels to see what I mean. I'm using
    framebuffer console here.
    Thanks, Sharp!
