like loading or not loading a particular module?

#include <asm/cachectl.h>

does the cacheflush, I could test it.

There are other important problems, for example the fbdev driver 
completely ignores all colormap, -mask and depth information it 
gets from the fbdev device.
The only way I could get usable colours on my Q40 was to
hardcode this into hw/xfree86/drivers/fbdev/fbdev.c. Strangely
there is another fbdev driver in hw/kdrive/fbdev, what is this
good for?
