Is this the reason why you were finding that my patch didn't seem to work?

My guess would be that the acornfb is the only driver that defaults
to setting a virtual resolution that differs from the physical.

(in that there's no reason to do this for its own sake, and I'd suspect
that other architectures don't need to do this to improve performance for
fix sized text screens)
