I've uploaded my first cut at the Cyrix MediaGX frame buffer console driver

Its only been tested with the 5520 not the 5510 support chip.

Should use the hardware cursor
Should use the blitter for rectangle clearing
Chipset seems to have origin setting. This will be very
good news for scrolling if so
Add compression mode support
640x400 mode
Support mode setting

The other oddity right now is my XF68_FBdev binary sets the screen to
white on white with white window decorations 8(. I dont know if thats
a bug in my XF68_FBdev build or the driver.

I plan to finish this just to get to understand fbcon properly before I
attempt 640x480x16 banked VGA and monochrome hercules bitmapped console
