I don't know if it can be called from atomic contexts or not :(


In addition I get panics some time after start-up which I'm not sure
what to associate them with (apparently unrelated)
It could be some stack overflow by calling fbset (I will to more testing
in order to find out)

First attempt: calling fbset via ssh:
