Sorry, but at my last posting my email prog used wrong email adress. With
this adress I wrote my problems some time ago. I had to just irq polling
and the x-server couldn't find video card. For more information you could
look to mailing list.

Maybe the old rev works so good I could use old sources. I will test and
look what changes could be interesting for me. If I will do changes on
sources to work better with coreboot on my board I will post these changes
here. But at first I have to look if anything important does not run.
