That's not the correct fix. VGA_MAP_MEM() should take into account the ISA
memory space offset.
And in fact it does, cfr. include/asm-ppc/vga.h, just make sure to initialize
vgacon_remap_base with the correct ISA memory space offset.

Vga16fb doesn't use VGA_MAP_MEM(), it just uses ioremap() on the VGA memory.
But arch/ppc/mm/pgtable.c has a special case for mapping memory below 16 MiB,
and adds _ISA_MEM_BASE to such addresses. So you have to make sure to
initialize _ISA_MEM_BASE with the correct ISA memory space offset as well.
