reason I'll try X is the console is horribly slow. I'm not sure if
that's the framebuffer code or if there's something else going

It sounds like the console firmware doesn't use any hardware
acceleration for scrolling. That could likely be fixed. If that is the
case, then X should solve the problem straight away.
