I am interested, so I did.
If I start the test without X running, the sprite of 256x256 cursor always
contained horizontal lines across it, both with commit reverted and vanilla
v5.11. Similarly, the 64x64 cursor has no lines across it in both kernels.
The test does not seem to work at all if there is an X server running (using
modesetting driver): modetest complained about permission denied to set the
mode, and just sits there, drawing nothing on the displays.
So I could not run the test in the environment of original problem.
Am I starting it correctly? Is the change in modetest.c correct?
