That's why I mentioned "early console initialization" in my mail
As I've also written, I consider the in-place reversing stuff a pain
It is only _really_ needed in early initialization; later at
runtime a matching font can be loaded through /dev/wsfont.
I don't know the deatils of all the more embedded-like evb*
ports, in particular the vaiety of graphics adapters to support.
Wouldn't it be feasible to just prepare fonts as needed and drop
the bitswap etc. code completely?
