I'm using Linux kernel + Busybox on an embedded system with a video console (fbcon) on LCD. I'd like to be able to change between compiled-in fonts (e.g. VGA 8x8, MINI4x6) on runtime. I know it's possible to do it before boot via boot parameters (fbcon=font:VGA8x8). Busybox has setfont utility but it doesn't seem to work with the compiled-in fonts.
