Who cares? ;)
Seriously though, the description implies that it only affects the case when
there is no video BIOS, which shouldn't normally be the case on Intel. So the

Unfortunately, noone has come up with anything but a hack about this
problem... So until it gets sorted out, people should use UseFBDev.
