Somewhat harmonized the README between xf86-video-cyrix, xf86-video-nsc and xf86-video-geode.

TODO:
* Rename http://wiki.x.org/wiki/AMDGeodeDriver
      to http://wiki.x.org/wiki/GeodeDriver
  and install a redirect from the old page.

Support for Cyrix and NSC Geodes shall be merged into xf86-video-geode,

contact the X.org Geode mailing list (see subscribtion instructions on
the project's homepage) if you can contribute towards reaching this goal.
