Right, I might look into it, however my knowledge of X internals is near zero. 
I'll gladly take any help.

I have genfb already attaching and displaying on some cards, but it is not 
usable yet, because amiga-specific console code needs rework to support 
wsdisplay-on-PCI. Besides, genfb currently works only after AmigaOS boot 
(someone needs to initialize the card and amiga has no PCI graphics firmware, 
except for CVPPC/BVPPC cards).
