That commit goes back to 2.6.28 (and is dated Oct 2008).

That means that you really need to describe the problem more:

.. but without the commit, you get no fb at all, right? So even with
the commit, at worst you'd just be able to not use the matroxfb
driver, right?

What I'm trying to say is that I suspect there are G200eV users that
likely prefer having the support in - even though it's not perfect.
And the fact that the commit has been there for 2.5 years without
comments makes me very loath to just revert it.
