Well at least having help in the "getting it to actually build and load without failure" is a step in the right direction... ;)  I don't have a SiS machine to test against, so I'm just pushing with build testing and eyeballing that there should be no "functional" change on the old servers where this driver actually worked (as it wouldn't load on recent servers due to unresolved symbols).
