Bug#317829: kernel-source-2.6.8: Loading of vesafb fail at the boot time

Package: kernel-source-2.6.8
Severity: normal

-- System Information:
Debian Release: testing/unstable
  APT prefers testing
  APT policy: (990, 'testing'), (500, 'oldstable'), (500, 'stable'), (33, 'unstable'), (1, 'experimental')
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Shell:  /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash
Kernel: Linux 2.6.11-woodswolf
Locale: LANG=fr_FR@euro, LC_CTYPE=fr_FR@euro (charmap=ISO-8859-15)

I try to load vesafb at the boot time by append="video=vesafb" and no
/dev/fd0 device is created. I try to compile vesafb in the kernel inside
and as the module ; it's don't work. 
The same problem exist why the 2.6.11 version
Jul 11 21:39:22 wolf001 kernel: Inspecting
Jul 11 21:39:22 wolf001 kernel: Loaded 26625 symbols from
Jul 11 21:39:22 wolf001 kernel: Symbols match kernel version 2.6.11.
Jul 11 21:39:22 wolf001 kernel: No module symbols loaded - kernel
modules not enabled.

So I don't know why, but vesafb can't be load at the boot time.
When I look for why, I test different vga mode. The scan get me 7 modes
and only 2 works. For the others 5, I have a blank screen until the X
server come.
