NAME
       vga_gettextmoderegs, vga_settextmoderegs - get/set the vga state used
       in text mode

SYNOPSIS
       #include <vga.h>

       void vga_gettextmoderegs(void *state);
       void vga_settextmoderegs(void *state);

DESCRIPTION
       The functions gives access to the buffer where svgalib saves the vga
       state which is use when the kernel displays text on the SVGA.  This is
       used by the restoretextmode(1),  savetextmode(1), and  textmode(1)
       utilities to restore a possibly screwed console.

       The buffer currently occupies 385 bytes. It can't do any harm to make
       it substantially larger to allow for future enhancements.
