Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: initramfs-tools
v86d, which is required by uvesafb requires /dev/mem and /dev/zero to be present early in the initramfs.
Currently they are created by the init-top/usplash script, moving them to the init-top/framebuffer script seems to solve the mysterious problem of
[ 2.631307] uvesafb: Getting VBE info block failed (eax=0x4f00, err=-2)
[ 2.631471] uvesafb: vbe_init() failed with -22
[ 2.631735] uvesafb: probe of uvesafb.0 failed with error -22
Hopefully this small fix can be applied to intrepid and we can all have a useful framebuffer console with nice high resolution :)
** Affects: initramfs-tools (Ubuntu)
