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.
