W Either fix the Riva TNT2 framebuffer code, or mark it as unworking,
   buggy, not recommended, dangerous, or some other appropriate adjective.

On my machine, booting with the Riva framebuffer support causes the
screen to darken to such an extent that it's completely unreadable. I
can barely see Tux the Penguin(tm) up in the upper left hand corner
for a bit.

The machine is a 500MHz Athlon with a Riva TNT2 32MB card in it.
