Xorg wants to use wsfb, but there is no wsfb for Amiga graphics and
graphics card support probably fails for lack of PCI.

The amidisplaycc backend for wscons has a list of fixed display sizes.
The console is always 640x512(PAL) or 640x400(NTSC) but you can chose
the size (from the list) for wscons screens in /etc/wscons.conf, with
e.g.: screen 0 80x31 vt100.
