This patch fixes several issues:
Use the right openprom device name so the driver is actually loaded.
Fix a crash due to unitialized info->pseudo_palette.
Put the framebuffer in the proper mode for software rendering.
Hardware acceleration was removed when the driver was rewritten
for the new framebuffer API in 2003. Software rendering requires
a different framebuffer access mode but that wasn't changed. The
driver now works again but is slow. The proper fix is to reintroduce

Applied, thanks a lot for making this driver work Robert!
Many thanks from me as well. I hope I'm not the only person using this
