--- Comment #31 from Steffen Winterfeldt <snwint@xxxxxxxx> ---
Looking at the code is seems that relocation is required

You're right; after reading up the vbe specs again, 'relocation' means
mapping different regions into the window. So yes, it's required and the
code is correct.

Would it be possible to add VBE2 and linear framebuffer support to gfxboot?

Yes, I've done this in the branch mentioned in comment 23. The patch basically
simulates the 64k window thing by moving 64k segment selectors across the
framebuffer.
