vesafb_cnattach is a noop because it is called too early (before kvm86 is
initialized). This is why userconf fails; vesafb is not actually attached
at this point.
Possible workarounds include early probe and init of vesafb, or allowing
vga to early attach and taking ownership of the console when vesafb
attaches later on.
