I haven't tried this fix yet, but I'm really confused as to why vga16fb is in use at all. Are there really systems with video cards that can't handle vesafb? Seems to me that Ubuntu could use vesafb for nvidia card users when the proprietary drivers are in use and you'd still get the good experience you get with the open-source version. I don't get why adding a special renderer for vga16fb is a better solution than just using vesafb.
