mh, the problem must be related to that particular board, as I've tested the
code on both VX800 and VX855 (including a VX800 based laptop with panel).  But
thanks for letting me know.   viafb was working on the device before?  What
about the external VGA?

After loading viafb from your xo-1.5 branch on the XO1.5 or the VIA VX855
reference board, you should definitely get working output on the VGA out.

If even that doesn't work, something must have gone wrong while rebasing my
patches against the XO1.5 kernel tree.
