vga_gettextmoderegs, vga_settextmoderegs - get/set the vga state used
in text mode
void vga_gettextmoderegs(void *state);
void vga_settextmoderegs(void *state);
The functions gives access to the buffer where svgalib saves the vga
state which is use when the kernel displays text on the SVGA. This is
used by the restoretextmode(1), savetextmode(1), and textmode(1)
utilities to restore a possibly screwed console.
The buffer currently occupies 385 bytes. It can’t do any harm to make
it substantially larger to allow for future enhancements.

It is very likely that both are at least to some extent are due to Harm
Occasionally this might be wrong. I hereby asked to be excused by the

this first version of the svgalib manual.
