Er, what exactly is the CONFIG_PREP stuff in this driver supposed to be
for? "CONFIG_PREP" doesn't exist anymore to start with, and secondly I'm
not sure if any PReP boxes ever shipped with a riva card to start with. The
only real way to handle this in 2.4 is something like:
#include <asm/processor.h>
#define isPReP (_machine == _MACH_prep)
#define isPReP 0

That is, if there's really any need to test explicitly for a PReP box.
I asked Ani Joshi about this a while ago, and he wasn't quite sure why they
were in there either..
