Since you have build the Gentoo modules yourself, you most probably forgot to remove debug info from them. Try strip --strip-unneeded snd-ua101.ko and see if it makes a difference. Next time you rebuild modules for your system, strip all modules using make INSTALL_MOD_STRIP=1 modules_install

I believe you are looking for fbcon, you would need this option: 3. fbcon=map:<0123> This is an interesting option. It tells which driver gets mapped to which console. The value '0123' is a sequence that gets repeated until the total length is 64 which is the number of consoles available. In the above example, it is ...
