Yup. You probably want to take a look at Documentation/fb/vesafb.txt -
the modes are the same.
Great, thanks! I tried VESA 0x111 (Linux 0x311) - it is also what is used
by xfree86 vesa driver, after I've followed the suggestion from Tony
(cc'ed and quoted below) and tried X with vesa. The kernel boots, intelfb
driver doesn't exit, I can even start X over fb and it runs! But:
1) both screens - LCD and CRT bocome black as soon as intelfb takes over
and stay that way also under X
2) kernel logs fill with
intelfb: the cursor was killed - restore it !!
intelfb: size 8, 16 pos 0, 464
Buggy video BIOS?...

One good method is to use the "vesa" driver of Xorg/Xfree86. Check
/var/log/X*.log and it should have a nice list of vesa mode id's that
Then add 0x200 to any of them and use it in your vga= parameter.
