I am also wondering currently if it wouldn't be better to (try to) create a VESA 3 driver instead. Since we don't use acceleration and video overlay these days (no specs on the latter for nvidia) a vesa driver should be just as usefull: it can have MTRR-WC mapping, modesetting to custom modes (resolution, depth and refreshrate AFAIK) Such a driver would support other brands cards as well, and if we are going to do hw 3D acceleration we don't need to worry (much?) about co-existanse with a 'normal' (old fashioned?) 2D driver.
It definitely sounds like the most effective solution to the frequent "I can't run Haiku in native resolution" problem.
