  Cirrus video, graphical corruption, bad fonts

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  The error

  I started qemu by

  $ ./qemu-system-i386 -serial stdio -cdrom /dev/cdrom -vga cirrus

  with the original suse7.0 cd 1 in the cdrom drive (I think
  https://archive.org/details/suse-7.0_release_i386 has the image).
  After some console output (that uses a vga framebuffer which seems to
  work fine) the suse installer is started. It is displayed mostly
  correct, but several text passages are completely garbled.

  I noticed the same type of corruption when trying to run an old XF86
  SVGA Server on a SuSE 6.2 System using the `-vga cirrus` option.

  Therefore I think that the cirrus emulation might not work as intended
  any more.

  Qemu version

  I used  qemu-w64-setup-20180815.exe provided by

  ./qemu-system-i386 -version
  QEMU emulator version 3.0.0 (v3.0.0-11723-ge2ddcc5879-dirty)

  Hope you can fix it.

  Best regards!
