I don't really understand what bug you are reporting.  Is there a bug
filed for it?  Can you explain what you are seeing or what problem you
are trying to fix?  It Works For Me(TM).

Without a bug filed, we really cannot followup on this.

Workaround for the impatient: only certain kernels use fb.  Try a
different flavor.
