Personally I would start from scratch. In fact some years (*cough*
decade) ago I did just that and started writing a new driver for
matrox stuff. Unfortunately I ran out of steam after figuring out
most of the interesting hardware quirks and whatnot, so I never
finished it. The end result is that it still runs in userspace
but kinda looks like a kernel driver if you squint a bit.

Anyways, I just slapped a MIT license on it  dumped the whole
thing here:
The development history was, shall we say, not really useful
so I just squashed it.

You, or someone else, might find it interesting. I think in
terms of hardware support it's a superset of any other driver,
apart from the blob.
