that would be the x11/xf86-video-wsfb in pkgsrc, correct?

how does that work without underlying framebuffer support from the
driver wsdisplay is attached to?

does x11/xf86-video-wsfb work with:

wsdisplay* at ega? console ?
wsdisplay* at vga? console ?
wsdisplay* at pcdisplay? console ?

I'm guessing it will only with:

wsdisplay* at vesafb? console ?
wsdisplay* at pfb? console ?
wsdisplay0 at ofb? console ?

(I have no idea about tga, nextdisplay, or smg.)
