[PATCH] VGA to fbcon fix.
Currently when going from vgacon to fbcon the VT screenbuffer are often different sizes. In the case when they are different sizes a new VT screenbuffer is allocated and the contents are copied into the new buffer. Currently the amount copied from VGA text memory to the new screenbuf is the size of the framebuffer console. If the framebuffer console new VT screen buffer is greater than the VGA text memory size then we get some of the VGA BIOS contents as well. This patch will only allow you to copy up to the size of VGA text memory now. The rest is filled with erase characters.
