Oh, Linux framebuffer console. Even less portable than X11 mode; OS X
hasn't given you (easy) direct access to the console since 10.6 or
thenabouts and the API doesn't look anything like the Linux framebuffer.
You also can't use it concurrently with graphics (no virtual console
support). There might be support in the PureDarwin community if there still
is one and it hasn't completely bitrotted.
