Hmm, good to hear.

Maybe we should think about how mmap function should be implemented.
If we will introduce a "new" WSDISPLAYIO_GINFO ioctl, we should not
have WSDISPLAYIO_MODE_DUMBFB and maybe the new ioctl should provide
an offset value to be used to mmap framebuffer memory.
(In cgsix case, CGSIX_RAM_OFFSET should be returned)

I wonder how we should also provide mmap offsets of device dependent
registers for acceleration, though.
