I knew about thet warning. But I thought it was harmless, as none of the font
code really depends on console support...

... but I missed that drivers/video/console is not used if CONFIG_VT=y.
Sorry for that.

Does this (whitespace-damaged copy-and-paste) help?

--- a/drivers/video/Makefile
+++ b/drivers/video/Makefile
@@ -12,7 +12,7 @@ fb-y := fbmem.o fbmon.o fbcmap.o
modedb.o fbcvt.o
fb-objs := $(fb-y)

-obj-$(CONFIG_VT) += console/
+obj-y += console/
obj-$(CONFIG_LOGO) += logo/
obj-y += backlight/

It shouldn't make a difference if nothing inside drivers/video/console
is enabled,
as all objects in drivers/video/console/Makefile are conditional.

BTW, my plan was to move the font code to lib/font, but I haven't done that yet.
