Since all ports switched to Xorg, the old Xamiga drivers are no longer

Radoslaw Kujawa and myself added wsdisplay and wsfb support to some
graphics cards, which provide a simple frame buffer: grfcl, grfcv,
grfcv3d and grfet. They work, but not as great as before, as any form
of hardware acceleration is missing now.

There is no wsfb for the Amiga's native chipset yet, because it uses
separate bitplanes which wsfb doesn't easily support. So a lot more work
would be required for such a driver.
