I think I know what the problem is.  I notice that the ALI ARC firmware
does not show the VGA cursor -- so, either it has not initialized the
cursor shape, or is has set it to "not visible".  The VGA driver uses
the pcdisplay cursor routines, which does not appear to reinitialize
the cursor shape.

I'm about to test a kernel which initializes the cursor shape to an
underline, and if it works, I will commit the change.
