Well, worked around at least. You will likely see errors when
characters are scrolled sideways ( like inserting / deleting characters
in a command line ), so this needs to be fixed properly. I'll look at
the xf86-video-glint driver again, after all it works on little endian
I'll commit this as a temporary workaround.
