       vga_copytoplanar16 - copy linear pixmap into VGA 16 color mode video memory


       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_copytoplanar16(unsigned char *virtual, int pitch, int voffset, int vpitch, int w,
       int h);


       Similar to vga_copytoplanar256(3), but for 16  color  modes  (not  well  tested).  Assumes
       pixels stored in consecutive bytes ranging from 0 to 15 in the virtual screen.

       Copies  part  of a linear virtual screen in system memory at *virtual to VGA 16 mode video
       memory.  pitch is the logical width of the virtual screen (in pixels (which are  one  byte
       large)),  voffset  is the address offset into video memory, vpitch is the logical scanline
       width of the screen.  (w, h) is the size of the area to copy  in  pixels  (width  must  be
       multiple of 4).
