 Well isn't sfb the smart frame buffer (PMAGB-B aka HX)?  If so then it's 
quite close to the SFB+ (PMAGD aka HX+), which in turn is almost identical 
to the PCI TGA (modulo the bus interface and some RAMDAC variety).  So any 
Alpha TGA driver should be adaptable.

 The PixelStamp bits are a different beast of course, and sadly no known 
documentation pieces survived (which I was told were some handwritten 
notes anyway) so any handling continues being tricky.
