I just upgraded to XFree86 2.1 and noticed the following server
startup message:

	checkDevMem: warning: failed to mmap /dev/mem (Invalid argument)
        	linear fb access unavailable

I recall a recent message indicating that /dev/vga should be mmap'ed
instead of /dev/mem. Is anyone working on this? I assume that it's not
as simple as changing the reference from "/dev/mem" to "/dev/vga"?
