"so"? AFAIK, Digital UNIX didn't support CFB either... Digital UNIX
doesn't support half the boards we support, when plugged into alphas.
_if_ the hardware can work, we should support using it. I say "if"
because the one time i tried a PMAG-AA adapter in a 3000/300LX, I
didn't end up with useful video output (I seem to recall that it
didn't sync right). If that's a general problem, then sure, we
shouldn't try to support it on NetBSD/alpha.
However, if it's not a general problem, we should try to support it if
we can. (i.e. it's not right to just punt alpha support.)
