Quadra 700, RasterOps 8/24XLi

System: NetBSD 1.5.1_BETA NetBSD 1.5.1_BETA (GENERIC) #1: Fri Apr 13 20:33:29 EDT 2001 mac68k

The RasterOps 8/24XLi card don't probe correctly when use as second monitor. The rowbytes, psize and consequently the fbsize are not read correctly from the car

When use in 256 colors mode:
Device /dev/grf1
 mode_id: 0
  fbbase: 0x2f90000
  fbsize: 0xd8000
   fboff: 0x0
rowbytes: 1152
   width: 1024
  height: 768
    hres: 0
    vres: 0
   ptype: 0
   psize: 1
mmap succeeded, 0x040ab000
ioctl succeeded, 0xfd000000

Because of that the display in concentrated on the left side of the monitor.


Boot netbsd with a RasterOps 8/24XLi set as second monitor in a color depth other than B&W.

Hardcode the correct values in the kernel, but that's not a good thing to do.
