When I add this id to the list in riva/fbdev.c I get a mangled display,
but at least the driver finds the framebuffer memory.

    90000000-97ffffff : rivafb
    f1000000-f1ffffff : rivafb

rivafb: nVidia device/chipset 10DE0321
rivafb: Detected CRTC controller 0 being used
rivafb: disabling acceleration
rivafb: setting virtual Y resolution to 52428
Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 160x64
rivafb: PCI nVidia NV32 framebuffer ver 0.9.5b (64MB @ 0x90000000)
