The SiS DRM uses sisfb to allocate the framebuffer memory (XFree86 uses
sisfb, too, when present). There is currently no fallback method for
when sisfb is not present. I am working at the moment on removing this
requirement. We could have ifdeffed appropriately and built a
non-functional module, but that wasn't done.

I hope nobody minds me making massive style changes on the sis DRM
code. I find it quite ugly at the moment.
