Hmm, I think these patches can be ignored, at least for a while.

I realized that xgifb driver is now in staging, and it has much wider
support for XGI chips. So, we should work on getting that driver into
an acceptable form. And after that, it should be even possible to drop
XGI support from sisfb.
