Yup, there it is.

I guess that's what I get for listening to my coworkers.  Looking through the
XFree86 4.2.0 source, it sure looks like it's supported.

I know someone who just got a new Dell Inspiron 8200 that has one of these
chipsets.  I'll have to convince him to let me try to get NetBSD+XFree86
onto it to see if it works.
