XF86_SVGA + vesafb = Works

Hey all,
I just decided to try vesafb after the heated debate about the beer drinking
penguin (what a cutie!) and decided to try running X for the heck of it. Well I'm
using the SVGA server so I expected it to complain or crash, but it seems to be
working! I can even switch between VCs and X without problems. And X is still
accelerated :)

Kernel is 2.1.111, X, older Matrox Millenium 4mb with BIOS updates (forgot
the version) supports Vesa 2.10

If this was known to work, sorry for crowding the list, but I was under the
impression that only the FB server worked with vesafb.

One OS to rule them all,          
    One OS to find them,          
One OS to bring them all,         
    And in the darkness bind them.
