The framebuffer script has been nuked in git commit
db24ed6ec7887631c05ce0d51c53c8c2cb9c507a which was released as
version initramfs-tools 0.94.

The old framebuffer script is shipped as example through the docs,
I've just added additional information regarding the mode vs.
mode_option issue.

This bug shouldn't be present any longer, if you still run into
problems regardings this issue please feel free to report back.
