I have a question about syscons, and I was wondering if there were
anyone out there who knew enough about the initialization sequence of
syscons to answer...

    Basically, I'm trying to write a TGA driver around syscons, but TGA
is a PCI card, and it seems, after having looked through the syscons
code and the VGA driver, that syscons is better suited to ISA-style
adapters, i.e., it absoultely has to call (tga/vga)_configure() very
early in boot (i.e., before main()) to register adapters, and this
registration requires a probe of adapters _before_ PCI services are
available to do a probe of PCI adapters--is this true?  If so, does
anyone know of a nifty way around this conundrum?
