black screen and no keyboard on Silicon Motion with Xserver 1.3
Submitted by Brice Goglin

Reported by Clayton email@example.com on the Debian BTS 2 months ago. Upgrading to Xserver 1.3 broke X on his "Silicon Motion, Inc. SM712 LynxEM+ (rev a0)" board. It gives a black screen. The config and log with Xserver 1.3 are both available in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?msg=5;bug=428711
I thought it could be related to the VBE filtering problems that ajax fixed for the VESA driver, but Clayton tried a recent Debian Xserver with this patch and it didn't help.
I am assigning to the server for now since it was working fine with Xserver 1.1. But I don't know whether the server or driver actually needs to be fixed here.
