VIA's patch

VIA has released a patch to support newer (chrome9) VIA chips at linux.via.com.tw.

It doesn't break any existing code, so it should be safe to add to experimental builds.

Some of the comments embedded in this code are pure comedy :)

/* Strange thing happen! Faint. Code bug! */

/*DONE. Need we call function copy_to_user ?NO. We can't even
touch user's space.But we are lucky, since kernel drm:drm_ioctl
will to the job for us.  */
