BTW, for IGA 1682 video in Krups I wrote "igsfb" driver
(sys/dev/ic/igsfb*, sys/dev/pci/igsfb_pci.c) that can do bare minimum
wscons. It doesn't use acceleration yet, as I cannot find a way to
access accelerator registers in IGA in Krups. :(
CyberPro-2010 in netwinder is a successor of IGA 168x and if we ignore
advanced additional features like TV-capture, it's basily the same
card except that it can do memory-mapped i/o access and automagic
byte-swapping. The driver already has some provisions for CyberPro
support, but I don't have any to test.
