Remember? VGA console never worked without PCI_ROM_RUN until Luc's proposal. 
Consequently, the first test got never even compiled.

If the second test fails only coreboot's own vga_tx_byte will not work. Direct 
VGA access especially from the payload is unharmed.

Ronald's patch is perfectly sane, so I committed it modulo the braces. My VGA 
still does not work, but if it breaks someone's console (which I strongly 
doubt) I'll back it out again.
