Ooops. I apologize. It turns out that I didn't test this as thoroughly as I
had thought. Although the Voodoo3 works perfectly, 16-bit and 32-bit modes
are still broken on the Voodoo4.

Does anybody have docs on the Voodoo4/5 or know how byte-swizzling woks on
these cards? It definitely doesn't behave the same as the Voodoo3 . . .

If nobody objects, the patch I posted previously should still be applied to
2.4 since it does fix all the endian problems in tdfxfb with the Voodoo3.
