Hi All,

http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/585490

In today's Ubuntu kernel team IRC meeting it was requested from the
Foundations Team to build in fbcon (CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y) by
default for all archs.  This ensures that we reliably have a framebuffer
console from the start.  As noted in the Grub2BootFramebuffer spec [1],
this will help get us to the point where users can be in graphical mode
throughout the entire boot.  This will also close out a work item that's
been assigned to us in the foundations-m-grub2-boot-framebuffer
blueprint [2].  Also note that ports already builds this config option
in by default. 

Thanks,
Leann

Subject: [PATCH] UBUNTU: [Config] Enable CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y for all archs

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/585490

Per a request from the Foundations Team, building in fbcon by default
across all archs will ensure we reliably have a framebuffer console from
the start.  Ports already builds this config option in by default.

I remember the UDS session where this was discussed with the Foundations
team, and this looks right to me, so:

Applied to Maverick master.

Thanks,
