The intended semantics of the option is to disable every display output
except for the buffer provided by the firmware.

With USB it still would still disable the driver. That's useful if only
for debugging. There are also systems with hard-wired USB displays where
one cannot just unplug the adapter.

Admittedly, USB graphics is a bit of an odd use case, but neither is it
too far fetched IMHO.

Best regards
