Ok, try this change in console-client/.  I was a bit too optimistic about
VGA cards.  Everybody else around me already figured out that you had to set
read and write registers, even if you are not doing both.

        * vga-support.c (vga_read_write_font_buffer): New function.  It
        turns out that reading and writing needs the same register
        (vga_write_font_buffer): Implement in terms of
        (vga_read_font_buffer): Likewise.
