I sorry. I made a mistake when I upload the patchfile useing IE.
here I resend th patch. try again.
replace vidcontrol.
#cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/vidcontrol
#make ;make install;make clean

#cd /usr/src/sys/dev/syscons
#patch -p < current-syscons.diff
then add VESA and PIXEL support in kernel.

BTW: the output of "vidcontrol -i mode" show that SXGA+1400x1050, WXGA(1280 
x 800), WUXGA(1920 x 1200), WSXGA(1680 x 1050) it not supported.one of my 
box support 1280x800. But I can only use 1024x768. I will work on that.  

ALSO:  the syscons patch is continue development by Sascha Wildner
