 At least for the r128 driver, the problem is that the driver is built without
 VGAHW support, so it doesn't appear to do any VGA-state restoration.  To see
 if you are having the same problem, look for the following message in your
 Xorg log:
        VGAHW support not compiled, VGA module load skipped
 The following patch makes it build with VGAHW support -- that build restores
 the console state on VT switch just fine on my i386 / r128 test machine I
 had the initial trouble with (see earlier comments and the now-closed-as-dup
 xsrc/40606).  Ignore the commented out CPPFLAGS; that requires more work to
 get a correct config.h generated for the r128 driver, which for the purposes
 of getting this fixed is largely un-necessary even if it might be the better
 I suspect other drivers have the same issue, but haven't audited which ones
 depend on WITH_VGAHW and don't define it in Makefiles / get it via one of
 xorg-config.h / xorg-server.h
