Just remove the vga_pci entry in sys/conf/files.

It would be nice to make this optional if we want to load
a module for a given graphic card later on. I have for example
a VESA-extended driver (http://www.freebsd.org/~nsouch/download/s3pci.c)
for S3 graphic cards that _have_ linear framebuffer but only VESA 1.2 bios.

It currently works on top of VESA by replacing the video switch by another.
Exactly as VESA does on top of VGA.

What about including it into the tree as a module... s3_pci.c would be
in sys/dev/pci, nothing in sys/conf/files: just a module in sys/modules/s3.
