Thanks for the information.

It seems that v.v_vlin = curr_textmode->VDisplay / (MOFLG_ISSET(curr_textmode, ATTR_DOUBLESCAN) ? 2 : 1)
and v.v_clin = curr_textmode->FontHeight . Thus, v.v_clin is font's height and seems to be non-zero.
But according to https://bugs.gentoo.org/19485 , people are using kernel framebuffer instead.

curr_textmode->HDisplay/8*curr_textmode->FontWidth,
curr_textmode->FontWidth, resize1x1)) sresize=TRUE;
}
