O-Subject: [RHEL-7.4/7.3.z seabios PATCH] vgabios: Reorder video modes to work around a Windows bug
Bugzilla: 1392028

Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 RS1 come with a bug in its blue screen
of death rendering logic which prevents it from generating crash dumps.

The bug does not manifest if Windows sees a suitable 32 bpp video mode
before a suitable 24 bpp video mode in the list of modes returned from
vgabios. This commit moves all 32 bpp modes to the front of the list to
make sure that this is always the case.

Upstream patch:
https://www.coreboot.org/pipermail/seabios/2016-October/010963.html

There are valid concerns upstream about the breaking nature of the fix
but for the limited set of operating systems supported by RHEL/RHEV we
can easily verify that they are unaffected. So as things stand now, this
is a downstream-only patch which will be reverted in the near future;
the exact time will depend on Windows 10 RS2 schedule and other factors.
The goal is to make sure that our customers running Windows 10 VMs can
generate crash dumps.
