... and now the kernel driver supports a hardware cursor and there's a
new XFree86 driver which uses it and also supports some acceleration (
screen-to-screen copies, pattern and solid fills, lines ).
The graphics chip actually supports a lot more and fancier things like
alpha-blending and 3D - no sure how much of that can be supported.
