I'm not sure but it may be related to 5176. I'll look in detail tonight.

That's fantastic! I'd like to help with that too if I can, since all the
hardware I own is ATI right now. I admittedly know far too little about the
guts of my video card, but one of the reasons I decided to work on X was to
learn just that. I recently got my r128 on ppc up and running, so I can
work on that too. How does putting the two of us as uploaders for the
package sound?
