It's one of my hacks, and believe me, on *my* kernels it doesn't require
sys/device.h :-))

Doesn't work on grf0 because the cc grf driver doesn't support switching
video-modes (someone care to implement this? Should only be some calls into
view-area I guess...). It should however work on grf3, or I'm pretty puzzled
how else you got Xamiga24 running on the picasso... Try:

  videomode -a

this should give you a listing of all video-modes the kernel knows about.
You can then switch to a new mode with, for example:

  videomode -s 3
