Currently loader moves the cursor to the bottom left of the screen in a variety of places using 0 25 at-xy ( position cursor back at bottom-left )
If the screen has more than 25 lines, the cursor does not go to the bottom left, as shown in the following example.
The bottom row should be taken from the screen-#rows variable.

Testing notes

Boot and test with and without framebuffer, confirm cursor 'lives' at bottom left during autoboot countdown etc.
Test with password set and password prompt and processing is on bottom line
Test with bootlock password set, same.

Switch framebuffer modes and check sr and sc words and using at-bl to display text at the bottom left.
