I think this is a symptom of a broken RS690 driver, although it may be
related to another problem.  The right way to fix it is to figure out why
it's needed, since it shouldn't be.  I think the most likely thing is that
the RS690 driver is trying to initialize the graphics device, and shouldn't.

If you need to add onboard for RS690 to work, lets add it in the RS690
directory.  It's not something that we want to resurrect.
