Recovering from a blank Text console after switching back from X

Today I wanted to do something on my text console and of course, it has been blanked by the mtx driver.
As I didn't want do kill my uptime, I tried to dig a little deeper into this and finally, I found the solution to this problem.

The Blanking is caused by a buggy VBE Mode restoration/implementation of the mtx and mga drivers and therefore, this small little script applies to all users out there (it's not Matrox specific) that have this problem too with their graphics card drivers.

Detailed information about how it works and how to use it can be found in the included README file.
