As you may have guess from my subject, I've found why my machine
doesn't print anything when linux boots. At least I think I have.
Looking at drivers/char/console.c:con_init() tells me why. It will
only use the boot_info record when ACER_PICA_61 or MIPS_MAGNUM_4000
are enabled and when booted on those machines. Otherwise it will do
the default PC things. However, my video card isn't at SLOTSPACE +
0xb8000; like the kernel just blindly assumes :-(. It doesn't use the
address in the boot_info variable, like maybe it should.
So I thought I'd bounce it off the list, while I go off and try to fix
