But the controller is integrated into the 690, can we handle it just like an onboard controller and put VBIOS at 0xfff80000 and run VBIOS in the function of dev_initialize?

VGA initialization has changed in latest svn. Which svn revision are you 
You may want to skip VGA initialization for now. It is easier to get the 
rest working first.

A-Link or A-Link Xpress? If it is the latter, it is a PCI-Express link.

If you post a boot log and/or a patch against latest svn, we can 
probably help.
