Default Bug#508108: Please enable XVR-500 and XVR-2500 fb drivers for sparc

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.26-11
Severity: wishlist

We have recently found out that Debian installation UI looks much
better on various SunBlade systems if the framebuffer drivers for
XVR-500 and XVR-2500 cards (CONFIG_FB_XVR500, CONFIG_FB_XVR2500) are
enabled [0,1]. If there is going to be another kernel rebuild before
lenny, it would be great to enable these drivers. As cards are
sparc-specific, it is sufficient to enable them for sparc. Also, it
would be nice to apply the attached simple patch, which adds the PCI
ID of a card I have in my SunBlade 1000 [1], it appears that it's the
same chip (same device ID), but manufactured by a different company.
I've sent the patch to David Miller to be included upstream, however
haven't heard back yet [2].
