I few minutes ago I upgraded a arch box (x86_64), and to my surprise,
something that was working before, loading the kernel with parameter
"vga=0x37D" is no longer working (nothing happens).  The new version
is  The resolution for nvidia quadro  fx 570m is
"1920x1200", but the nvidiafb module has never worked, so I need to
use the vesa FB...

Well I tried a other vga modes, like 0x31B, 0x307, and then the screen
goes blank and freezes...  I don't know what happens, but it seems
like the vesafb which used to be compiled built-in, is not longer
working properly...
