I offered once to be the bunny. My problem was mainly PCI resource
allocation: when writing 0xffffffff to a base register, the value returned
by some chips (only graphics chips to my knowledge) does not reflect the
space actually used.

But nobody answered then, I volunteer again but beware that I don't have
any docs on graphics chips, and I won't be chasing them. Hopefully, it
won't take too much of my time.

Regards,
Gabriel.
