The right fix is to simply gut all of this code out of the
sunffb driver.  Have a look, none of this code is used.

It's due to all of the by-hand acceleration this driver did
before it was converted over to XAA.  There is simply no reason
for any of this CFB crap to be referenced any longer.  When I
did the conversion I didn't get around to the bit about removing
to now-unused code.
