Description

The BIOS mode is starting up with text mode and loader is switching to linear framebuffer mode. Sometimes it would be desirable to have option to avoid switching framebuffer at all. To support this, lets add option -t for loader to keep text mode, and teach gptzfsboot to pass this option to loader.

gptzfsboot can receive this option from boot: prompt (press a key on first spinner) or add -t to /boot/config file.

PS: UEFI does not provide text mode.
