[blfs-dev] Xorg for LFS-7.3

I just finished building Xorg for LFS-7.3 and it seems to be OK so far.
I am using the nouveau drivers and that loads fine. I only built the
evdev, vesa, and nouveau drivers, but I suspect the others will build
fine and run with the appropriate hardware.
LFS-7.3 tags for other drivers have not been updated, so if you test one
and it works OK, let me know and I'll fix that.
I do have one question about the kernel. During boot, it switches to a
framebuffer device. I'd prefer that it not do that and just stay in the
startup 80x25 character text screen.
I can disable the framebuffer by passing 'nomodeset' on the kernel
command line, but then I cannot enter X and I don't have /dev/fb0. Does
anyone know how to disable the framebuffer switch for just the kernel
boot sequence? Searching Google gives a lot of hits for grub, but
that's not the problem.
