The current VGA code does this if no font is installed: It reads out the font on the card, and builds a BDF structure out of it.  So, it's exactly as if you'd provide a font file with the VGA font on the card (width 8, etc).  If you leave this initialization code in, you don't need to worry about it at all.

This new patch makes it possible for the user to configure the monitor.  The interfaces are updated, bugs are fixed and the code is cleaned up.

What needs to be done:

- Test what happens when no fonts are installed. (is this acceptable?)
- Improve handling fonts with widths of 8 and 9. Suggestions are welcome.
- Implement some more functions like DPMS handling and setting the sync type. (Can I test this somehow?).
- I need to program the clock more carefully. I do this in the vsync now, perhaps the output needs to be disabled aswell.
- More testing is required. (Volunteers?)

This patch is far from perfect, I just uploaded so it won't get lost. I need to clean it up a bit and fix some issues and test it a lot.

The S3 driver is not good enough yet (No official specs yet...) and the clock programming code is not 100ave yet. So please be careful when using this patch.
