Worse than Hitler.

Just drop it from the ifdef-pciaccess code, no one cares.  In any event
the only sane thing to do for ISA detection is stick it in the kernel,
at which point you can use fbdev or drmfb or whatever.  The ISA support
is already gone from the pciaccess version of the vesa driver so it's
not like there's no precedent here.

This means, I suppose, that the vga driver is dead.  Yay for that!
