working on VGA.

- workaround that (append vga=791 to your kernel command line for example).

* XvMC
- The hardware MPEG4 acceleration that is present on some chipsets is not
implemented.
-- No XvMC support for CX700 (new unsupported engine)
-- No XvMC support for K8M890, P4M890 and P4M900/VN896 (need to get dri working
- for them first)

* TV output
- TV modes are hardcoded and must be choosen inside a list depending on the TV
encoder.
-- Outputs are dependant on each other and will use the lesser common
- denominator. If you're using both VGA/LCD output and TV output, the VGA/LCD
- output will be limited by the TV encoder (720x576@50Hz for example).
