Major rewrite of X radeon driver. All-in-Wonder cards require a portion of
video memory (preferably dynamically allocated) for video capture or playback.
Also, video playback requires overlay scalar unit - which thus must be
shared with Xserver's XvPutImage functionality.
It is simply much easier to implement video-in support in the same place
the rest of Radeon driver resides.
