We can't use loadable fonts for everything because then we can't
report any errors in font routines. Also we can't show logo because
fonts are initialized later. That's why people had the problem with
blank screen.
I suggest leaving "void lcd_putsxy(int x, int y, unsigned char *str,
int thisfont)"
as way to print messages with internal fonts. This way all service
routines like panicf would not depend on ld fonts.
Attached is a simple patch that fixes the problem.
