Old Code does die

I have a very old VA Linux 2200 box that I use a firewall. I recently upgraded it a later version of OpenBSD but it appears that I’ve found a regression in the X Server. This machine uses the Intel 440Gx Chipset with an integrated Cirrus Logic CL GD5480 Video adapter. It looks like the support for the video adapter has fallen out of Xorg 7.2 since the old OpenBSD could drive this box at 1280x1024x16bpp even though the box only has 2M of video RAM (If you do the math, don’t ask me I’m trying to found out how myself).  The new driver can’t do this. I’ve spent a few hours trying to find Doco for the chipset in Xorg but the man page is another one of those “This section needs to be completed things…”
