Hmmm sounds really drastic, I had no problems with my kernel,
just the switching doesn't work. I use true color for 2 days
now, no kernel panic or whatever just -mode results in nothing
at all.

Of course I looked over grf.c and grfioctl.h.

grfioctl.h had just one difference, in the very last line, the
ioctl was defined as IO_W I think instead of IO_R.
I compiled two kernels, no difference, either with W or R.

And grf_rh.c didn't complain about anything in the 1.0 version
of grf.c, so I didn't change it.

I said in the README file, someone else has to find out, why
the mode switching doesn't work, let's see, if I'll be the one :-)

Thanks for the hint so far, I'll check grf.c to see where
the important changes are and will soon make a new package.
