Any idea if that is at all related to -s3 or -s3virge? If so, or if
there's any doubt, then perhaps one or both of those should stick around
a bit longer. But if it's a separate driver, then best to handle it
separately with -dovefb and those others.

There is a separate X driver for -displaylink. Just like with -sisusb
it doesn't autoconfigure anyway since X doesn't (yet) probe the USB bus
for video devices. So, -displaylink is available in the archive (for
Ubuntu anyway) but not installed by default.
