i didn't wrote it, i can only give you a hint where to find it
so you can try it

it applys fine an i have i patched it in out own working tree
as far as i know it is tested on acer, sony vaio and some thinkpad
and works great.
since 0.3 move and clear is implemented by using the acclerator on nm2200
and above so you really gain speed when scrolling though your consoles

there is also some patch for aty128fb i use some time now without any
problems... anyway... now my ati works, before it doesnt.

have fun testing, and yes... a textconsole at native resolution is that
what i need to work with an lc-monitor.... 1600x1024 looks great booting
at native resolution:
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 200x64
