It would be *truly* winning if the kernel could be told whether the
console is in a graphics or character-cell mode, where the frame
buffer is, how big pixels are, and so on, and if this could be
settable via a privileged ioctl, so that if I'm running X and suddenly
dump out into ddb, the kernel can Do The Right Thing.
