  Actually, they are "still" available, but the latest
git X Server must be compiled with --enable-mfb.
  But I think non linear less than 8 bpp only worked
in the first few vesa driver versions, and nobody
cared to fix it after it broke, and, anyway, nowdays
I don't think there is even a "modern" vesa bios that
advertises any such mode.
