To wrap up this one - this is an issue with `options VESA` / vesa.ko.
It is not related to vt(4), which does not use that VESA driver.

I have removed `options VESA` from GENERIC now in b8cf1c5c30a5. It
serves no purpose when vt(4) is in use, and the kernel module is still
available for sc(4) users who want to set a VBE mode.

As an aside, the loader can set a VBE mode and vt(4) will make use of
that, it just does not support mode changing after boot.
