s3savage drivers and Xv

I'm running 4.2.0-0pre1v2 on a Toshiba laptop with:

    VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C270-294 Savage/IX-MV (rev 13)

To get video working I went to:


and then:

    $ wget http://www.probo.com/timr/s3savage-driver_1.1.23t-1_i386.deb
    # dpkg -i s3savage-driver_1.1.23t-1_i386.deb

I'm not aware if there are other fixes available.

Is it possible to get that updated driver into the debian release of
xfree86, or is that something that has to be done upstream? 

Also, is this problem noted any place in the docs so that others using this
hardware will see how to fix the problem?
