Actually, you'd need to send a tested patch (or rather, at least test the
trial patch I'm including here). Because it's not a trivial revert at all,
we've had various fbcon fixups since that depend on that commit.

See at least commits

- afa9b649 "fbcon: prevent cursor disappearance after switching to 512
character font"

- d850a2fa "vt/fbcon: fix background color on line feed"

- 7fe3915a "vt/fbcon: update scrl_erase_char after 256/512-glyph font
switch"

and while I suspect that reverting them all in that order (ie

git revert -n afa9b649
git revert -n d850a2fa
git revert -n 7fe3915a
git revert -n c9e587ab

should work (with a trivial fixup), I need somebody to test the result.

Here's the patch as best as I can do. It compiles, but I have not tested
it, nor seen any of the failure cases, so I really don't want to commit it
as-is.

So please check this patch. Also, can somebody please verify what the
_correct_ vt100 behavior is? The test-case was in the original commit, but
quite frankly, it doesn't work on my text console like it does on xterm
_or_ 'termina' for me, _with_ the patch in place. So I suspect a revert is
good, but I want to have this tested/explained more.
