I have some patches somewhere for a real hack to get a basic cfb X
server running (slowly) on the 3000/400 w/ PMAGB-B(?).  I need to get
that machine back up and running and clean those patches up some.
Unfortunately, I don't have time for it right now.  I think another
fellow has done some work with this, though, and may have actually
gotten some use of the h/w acceleration features of the sfb.  I don't
recall for sure, though--it's been a while (nearly a year!?) since I
looked at this...
