[opensuse-factory] missing utility: fbset
fbset is a tool used for troubleshooting in forums and mailing lists. Google
hits that use it are useless on openSUSE, because it was dropped from standard
repos roughly 3 years ago. Installed from a discontinued repo shows:

# rpm -qi fbset
Name : fbset
Version : 2.1
Release : 938.1.1
Architecture: x86_64
Install Date: Sun Dec 27 03:43:26 2015

Source RPM : fbset-2.1-938.1.1.src.rpm
Build Date : Sat Jan 26 10:54:03 2013

Packager : http://bugs.opensuse.org
Vendor : openSUSE
URL : http://users.telenet.be/geertu/Linux/fbdev/

Description :
FBSet can query and change console framebuffer settings.

Some framebuffers do not support this, such as the VESA framebuffer
"vesafb".
