DRM driver for USB-based SiS graphics cards

a project by tdz

Back in the late 90s to early 2000s, SiS graphics chips were fairly common and found in many low-end devices. Today, the chips are still capable enough for simple graphics needs, but the graphics cards were on PCI and AGP buses. They are not usable in modern computers. However, there exist USB-based graphics cards with a SiS 315 graphics chip. Those are around on Ebay et al [1] and easily usable with current computers. I already do have a driver for the old PCI-based SiS drivers and have long been struggling to find something useful to do with it. Converting it to serve USB devices would finally make it useful.
