We have tried the branch above and while it does make it better and usable 
in 16bit mode, 8bit is still missing (no wonder as it does not have that 
implemented but the AmigaOS driver only allows 16bit and 8bit with the 
sm501 device this is used in but probably that's not important when 16 bit 
works). Even in 16bit more there were some graphics problems seen but that 
may need some more checking to make sure it's not some other change as the 
report was not clear if that worked before. I've asked to check the 
changes in 
https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pixman/pixman/-/merge_requests/71 next to 
see if that would work better.
