There are a few things I want to add/change before it can be committed. 
I'm currently working on it.

I've made a new version of my patch. I've added support for 15 and 24 
bit modes (in addition to the 16 and 32 bit support). Also, I've done 
some cleanup and restructuring work.

Here's the link: http://www.yoyodyne.de/tmp/syscons.patch2

If there are no objections this patch could be committed. I'd still 
classify it as somewhat experimental since there are issues with some 
graphics adapters (I'm currently collecting the problems folks are 
reporting). Also, some screen savers have problems and the mouse pointer 
produces drawing glitches when selecting text.

Thanks to Sarunas Vancevicius, YONETANI Tomokazu and Joerg Anslik for 
comments and testing.
