it's be interesting to know what it says, exactly.

My guess is that the other cards are not -- and should not -- be
reporting themselves as VGA cards (i.e. with the normal
class/subclass) because, well, they _can't_.

they're probably reporting themselves as PCI misc. display devices...
there used to be a "PCI misc. display" driver (at least for the alpha)
which would let people mmap them from user-land...
