As it is really simple, I've attached it to this mail. The program
simply fills the screen with a cycling color, to make sure the program
hasn't crashed, and exits once you press any key. It runs successfully
with x11 and svgalib targets, but with fbcon target the input doesn't
work. Even the NumLock key. I simply have to hard-reboot my machine to
get out of it :(

Hope this will help!
