       vga_getmodename - return a name for the given video mode


       #include <vga.h>

       char *vga_getmodename(int mode);


       A  pointer  to a static memory buffer is returned. Depending on mode it
       consist of a capital G followed by the amount of x pixels, followed  by
       a lower case x, followed by the amount of y pixels, followed by a lower
       case x.  Finally the number of different colors is appended.  Here  the
       shortcuts 32K,64K,16M, and 16M4 are used for 32768, 65536, and 16777216
       are used. The last refers also to 16777216 which are store in  4  bytes
       (highest address byte unused) for easier screen access.

       For  unsupported  values  of  mode  the empty string "" is returned. In
       general  the  string  resembles  the  corresponding  #define  for   the
       videomode in #include <vga.h>.


       vga_getmodename(10) returns "G640x480x256".
