OK, clearly I should refrain from posting when I've been up all night.
I reread my post and even I'm not sure ow anyone is supposed to get
concrete help from it.

Take a look in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/fb/, there's quite a lot of
documentation about various things framebuffers are good for, and things
they're bad at.  There's also a list of video options that can be passed
at boot - I meant mine as something to be looked up and then
implemented, rather than a literal piece of advice.  Sorry about that.
