Indeed. But I had no better idea (thats why it is tagged as
"workaround"). Suggestions are welcome.

We are running real mode, so the framebuffer is out of reach. As far
I know the bios routines switch to 32bit mode temporarely. seavgabios
could try to do that directly instead. But I have my doubts that it
will work better (havn't actually tried though).
 except for the setup code which runs in big real mode so 32bit
access works there.
