vga_drawline - draw a line on the screen
int vga_drawline(int x1, int y1, int x2, int y2);
draws a line from (x1, y1) to (x2, y2) on the screen. If you exchange
start and end of the line you should not expect the exactly identical
set of pixel be covered by the line.
This function is very inefficient as is does a bunch of
vga_drawpixel(3) calls, you should consider using gl_line(3) which is
very efficient, or doing direct screen access instead or use
vga_drawscansegment(3) to handle more than one pixel.
The color drawn is set with vga_setcolor(3) or vga_setrgbcolor(3) resp.
The function always returns 0 (on which you should probably not really
