I've just discovered that Matrox G-series seems to have this *full* support into the official kernel, and I'm going to buy a G550 (even if it isn't the latest and greatest) to check it.

If it works I think I'll get rid of my Nvidia and/or ATI cards (as long as Nvidia don't decide to support framebuffer too...).

The DRI/Xorg guys are working on a way to allow a subset of dri to be used for framebuffer console. This is what you guys want and most opensource drivers will get it in the near future. (dri kernel mode setting)

On my notebook (Radeon 9600M) the X.org 'radeon' driver plays perfectly well with the 'radeonfb' driver...
