Good, as expected. I'll go and commit this into xf86-video-nsc and release
a new driver - soon.

The only issue with the dirver I know of is that changing between a bitmap and 
RGBA cursor shortly shows random garbage. Everything else is very fine.

If I find enough time I also want to rewrite the rotation handling to not 
require the shadowfb.
