No driver uses it.  But xf86ValidateModes (alone, hence static) does,
which is why I moved it to xf86Mode.c.  And does so in more than one
place, so the factorization still makes sense.

Nggh, yeah.  I'm trying to find _good_ attribution of this code, and not
having much success.  It doesn't exist in XFree86 3.3.6, which appears
to be the only 3.x release that's easily findable on the interwebs
anymore.  (Thanks, guys.)  According to


it was birthed whole into XFree86 3.9jf, including all the
Goei/Roell/SGCS attribution.  I really can't be bothered to find the
original Roell code to see if miScanLineWidth existed there.  I kind of
doubt that it did, it reads like tsi code.
