I'm happy to read that. Currently I see nothing which prevents us
from implementing wsdisplay and using XOrg's wsfb.

Although grfconfig(8) allows to define up to 24 different screen modes,
I think we should just use mode #1 or the first valid one, when setting
WSDISPLAYIO_MODE_MAPPED. Current X11 drivers allow to select any mode.
