Bug#282088: kernel-source-2.6.9: Add vesafb-tng patch to Debian kernel

Package: kernel-source-2.6.9
Version: 2.6.9-2
Severity: wishlist

Vesafb-tng is from here:


As the page describes, it allows the user to:

    * set graphic modes with higher-than-standard refresh rates,
    * set modes by specifying their name, like 1024x768-32@85 - no more
      need to look up mode numbers in the VESA mode tables!
    * set graphic modes at any time (not only at boot),
    * get more info about the VBE BIOS (through /proc and dmesg output),
    * compile and use vesafb as a module,
    * use the console with vesafb and have X running with nVidia binary

I add this patch:

It adds clean except for the conflict with Konfig and the modular-vesafb patch already in.

No doubt due to being one of the clueless, I can only boot the 2.6.9 kernel and framebuffers
with this patch.
