fbdev: do not allow VESA modes without compiled-in drivers
Do not accept VESA modes by the "vga=" kernel parameter if there is no frame buffer driver compiled-in to handle it. Also, there is a comment added to the Kconfig description after Werner Lemberg's suggestion Addresses http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13249 Signed-off-by: Krzysztof Helt <krzysztof.h1@wp.pl> Reported-by: Werner Lemberg <wl@gnu.org> Cc: Michal Januszewski <spock@gentoo.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

This driver supports the on-board graphics built in to the Intel
830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G/915G/915GM/945G/945GM/965G/965GM chipsets.
Say Y if you have and plan to use such a board.
+ To make FB_INTELFB=Y work you need to say AGP_INTEL=y too.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called intelfb.
