Thanks for the tip. I've got VGA working now at least (640x480 in
4-bit color).

If there is someone who has experience with oskit/gnumach maybe I can
pay for the work to add i810 support (send me an email if anyone is
interested).  I don't think I would be able to do it myself, due to a
lack of knowledge in that area.
