Yep, that was me. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any trouble making
dlloader modules work.
Kendall, I'm for some reason thinking that the SciTech drivers were based on
the cfb framebuffer core. cfb will not work under dlloader with 6.8 without
but you may be better off switching to fb. ISTR some correctness issues with
cfb that no one wants to look at because cfb is terrifying.
