Its in the standard tree as well. The question is does it work in the mips
branch? Last time I tried booting without the bios it did not work. Yhlu
is right, atyfb_setup_generic is called which in x86 calls the
init_from_bios function. Then in aty_init is the biosless initializing is
done.

The idea of the patch is not to need FW.
