Jeez, how dumb am I? I was thinking of planar pixels. Packed pixels
should indeed be fine.

Assuming that it isn't possible to fix bogl for whatever reason, the
best option would be to write a small helper program that does
fd = open("/dev/fb0", O_RDWR);
ioctl(fd, FBIOGET_FSCREENINFO, &fix);
if (fix->type == BAD) exit(1);
and add logic to /sbin/udbootstrap to invoke this thing and make it fall
back to non-UTF8 mode in the bad cases.
