Only small changes to VESA.

Right, DJGPP would be the target compiler.

It was a difficult decision what to keep and what to cut. Basically, because I
made so many changes, I decided to only keep hardware support that could be tested, so much hardware support for old hardware had to go. However, the simplified code thus becomes much easier to work with, and old code can always be restored if needed.

I knew there were optimizations to be made in the libraries as well as the CORE SRC, so I integrated everything, but of course that's not too hard to undo and use more modern code.

Of course. I'll get something together and let you know.
