I do not recognize this error, but I can provide some checkpoints:
    - You got the X(daniver)-server from the NetBSD/Atari-current directory?
      The Amiga & Atari X-servers are not interchangable!
    - You have a kernel where the number of views is at least one higher
      than the number of ite's?
    - There are devices for grf<N_ITE+1> and view<N_ITE+1>?

This *should* work. At some point however you will get in trouble with the
interrupt rate (the bloody chip only has a 3-byte fifo :-( ).
What exactly is the problem when setting the speed?
