  Hopefully it can work with xgixp :-)  Anyway, by just looking at
the xgi code I am tempted to do some major rework starting from
xf86-video-xgi, like not defining static data structures in header files,
removing all the unecessary structure fields, maybe make it work with
vgahw, etc. But not sure if worth it and the time required (surely
not worth if xgi continue to work on the code based on an older xorg
