I remember that problem, but I don't remember the exact procedure to
fix it. It may have gone away when I moved my fb driver from a module
into the kernel, but there should be other options... I just can't

Perhaps adding an explicit "reset" at the end of the bootscripts? I
don't know if that will fix it to all virtual consoles or only the
first one, though.
