in actuality this shouldn't be a problem, since it looks to me like
the code falls back gracefully if it can't open the fb device.
however, there probably should be a check to make sure the fb device
opened is actually the same card/head as mga_vid is driving, and i'm
not sure how easily this can be done. ideally, mga_vid itself should
be able to report the current display size...
