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.
