It sets a VESA graphic mode and tells the kernel to use the VESA frame
buffer as a console; 793 is VESA mode 0x119 i. e. 1280x1024 in 32768
Perhaps the driver doesn't know how to program proper graphic modes on
your card and needs to use the BIOS. Similar nonsense as on Intel 830M
and newer (up to and including 915G so far)
so if the mode is 792, is there a way to work around it?
