That's just a bug; there's no reason to have it blank for a long period
of time as we're not setting a new mode, just changing the frame buffer
pointer. Fixing the driver API to keep this from reprogramming the video
hardware would make the switch instantaneous at least, even if it
doesn't have a cool transition effect.
