To do this you probably have to call the VSA2 binary drivers that come
with the Xpress ROM kit. Otherwise you are not able to use some of the
peripheral components. I've been initializing network and usb correctly
without VSA, but with other components you might run out of luck. I
heard rumours that you can get video to work just with the Linux
framebuffer driver, but I did not get anything but a black screen
without VSA init. Sound definitely needs VSA init, as there is no driver
that uses the native interface
Laissez Faire Economics is the theory that if each acts like a vulture,
all will end as doves.
