There is a bug in the Debianized /drivers/video/vesafb.c. If you *really* want 
that framebuffer, you could do what I did... copy the vesafb.c from the 
vanilla kernel and recompile.

BTW - if you're also looking to have a bootsplash screen, run the patch after 
you've copied the vesafb.c file over.

Word is there is a fix coming RSN.
