[PATCH 2/3] x86/boot: simplify mode_table

Posted by Jan Beulich 1 month, 2 weeks ago
There's no point in writing 80x25 text mode information via multiple
insns all storing immediate values. The data can simply be included
first thing in the vga_modes table, allowing the already present
REP MOVSB to take care of everything in one go.

While touching this also correct a related but stale comment.
