I've got a bastardized kernel running the latest 'multi-line' patch posted
yesterday, and the fast_opost patch. Very very snappy. Most notable is doing
a PageUp with 'less' on a big file (like a pre-patch).

So, what I'm mainly curious about, is why the fast opost didn't make it in?
I might hack a bit of the console some more and see what I can do.

Can you resend me the fast_opost patch? I don't recall it....

I seem to recall a dirty console speedup patch, which I had
reimplemented a slightly different way and put into the kernel tree, but
I don't recall the details. Send me that patch, and I'll see if it can
jog my memory.
