        I noticed that a lot of iso-8859-1 characters are displayed as 
        empty space on wscons. Most notable one is ssharp (0xdf), but 
        a lot more are missing.

        As far as I can tell, igsfb is using in-kernel gallant12x22,
        and that font does include nice glyphs at least at positions
        0xdd-0xdf, which are not displayed on my machine.

        jot -c 96 160 | hexdump -C > /dev/ttyE3
