Yes, that works.

Does this have any drawbacks regarding the use of xorg? (I haven't yet installed that...)

I can confirm this problem exists on Sunblade100 with the 2.6.18-3 (Mon 4 Dec) and the same fix works.

I have been using xorg and also using video=atyfb:off to avoid the "red dots" issue, no problems I can see, only the alternative consoles have some unusable frame outside, about 20% of the screen area.
