If you are able to compile a kernel, make one without framebuffer
support for the console.

Otherwise you'll have to look again at what options you are passing
to the kernel.

On a related note, why use framebuffer at all? It's always the first
thing I unset, in case I forget later on. Am I missing something?
(besides tux in the boot screen).
