gpm selection vs VGA console & fbcon

There's an endian bug that have been around for some time causing
text & attributes to be flipped when doing selections with gpm
in console mode with VGA console enabled & running on an fbdev.

I didn't follow that closely, but since it's popping up again for
users I beleive a fix was never merged in the main tree. Is there
such a patch available or it's still on the list of "things to
look into one day"  ?
