You probably have VGA console enabled. You should disable it and do a
clan rebuild of the kernel (backup your .config, make mrproper, restore
the .config and rebuild)

This is a known bug with the console code, I beleive someone will 
finally submit the proper patch :)

Same bug. The attribute/text bytes of the console buffer gets flipped
due to some endian crazyness.

It should work if you don't enable support for VGA console. I'll see if
I can put my hand on a definitive fix and submit it.
