Using vesafb or vga16fb make the screen green and oily !! (like pigeon's shit).
Very horrible.

This is very stressfull when usplash is available because the whole boot process
is a "moving shit" in the screen. Luckily, Xorg run.

Is it possible to include THE ONLY module needed for fb in the initrd ?
