Yep. I'm still working on debugging the 6326 port - I've got what look
like garbage co-ordinates although I suspect in the changes to vertex
buffer handling I've simply screwed the vertex stuff up in the port.

I'm still hopeful that a combination of that code, the sis kernel module
and some clear docs on which few pieces to swap will give us a basis for
a "fill in the blanks" driver for the dumb end of the graphics market -
which will matter for 2D using 3D X. These early cards are all much
alike to some level - textures in frame buffer or sometimes AGP space,
similar management needs, no DMA queues instead you what registers each
