See my other mail, it depends though on the size of it. How comes rivafb can't
take over from offb though ? Can you or Guido fill a proper bug report about
this ? We still want to be able to fit on a miboot floppy, and integrate as
many fbdevs as possible.

So, this means adding 65KB to the kernel, or probably 20-30KB compressed, will
make a test with it builtin and the miboot floppies, and tell you.
