[K12OSN] Cyrix display chip

I have 2 ideas:

1. Make sure the pci id of your cyrix vid. card is in
the vidlist file. Ive had about 3 cards over the years
not in that file.

2. One time, I had some S3 cards that didn't work
properly when using the default native driver. So I
tried svga driver and it was too slow, so what I did
was use the S3 driver but turned off the accel. I made
a custom XF86Config file for thoes pc's but I think
now, in the lts.config you can pass the extra options
needed to turn off acell.

I don't know if that will work or not but you can try
