    How well does this driver work if you don't have a firmware
    driver initialize the card? aka a pci option ROM.

    I am interested because with LinuxBIOS it is still a pain to run
    PCI option roms, and I don't necessarily even have then if it a
    motherboard with video. There are some embedded/non-x86 platforms
    with similar issues.

    My primary interest is in the cheap ATI Rage XL chip that is on many
    server board. PCI Vendor/device id 1002:4752 (rev 27) from lspci.

    If nothing else if some one could point me to some resources on
    how to get the appropriate documentation from the video chipset
    manufacturers I would be happy.

    But I did want to at least point that running a system with out bios
    initialized video was certainly among the cases that are used.
