sunffb is the correct xorg driver for Elite 3D and Creator 3D.

afbinit is necessary for Elite 3D but not for Creator 3D.

Empirical answers for two U60's:

    dual head, one of each card, kernel 2.6.16-1-sparc64-smp, xorg 6.9: okay
        (afbinit hard-locked with 2.6.17-1-sparc64-smp, needed a power cycle)

    single head, elite 3d, kernel 2.6.16-1-sparc64-smp, xorg 7.0: okay
