This would be the second step...
As my code looks now, the "font slots" provided by the
adapter (8 for VGA, 4 for EGA) are managed by an LRU queue.
This means, if all slots contain a font and a screen is switched
to which wants another one, the least recently used one is kicked out.
If one takes these ATI cards as special cases with only 1 slot,
we should be almost there...
There is still some work to do, however.
