mga driver / HALlib

I wonder how the HAL module in the mga driver could be built with
X.Org 7.1. Looks like this isn't intended any more. There is nothing
provided in configure/ files to still build the mga_hal_drv

The driver still tries to load it as you can see in mga_driver.c
(...xf86LoadSubmodule (... "mga_hal") ...) when USEMGAHAL is set. So
the code has not been dropped yet. And it still seems to be required
for features like MergedFB as you can see in the driver output, when
you try to enable MergedFB.

  ' HALLib not loaded! NOT using "Merged Framebuffer" mode. '
