There is no support there for this device, and until i get my hands on 
this hardware, there will be no support there. Next purchase (whenever, 
if ever) for me will be a VT3118, and that's at least 2 generations 
before VT3230.

So don't wait for support from my end.

What I'm saying is that trying to make vesa performance slightly less 
horrible is not going to take much less time as it would take to add 
proper VT3230 support.
