There is another patchset I posted to the list last week which cleans 
this up further - the values for bit depth, width and height are 
VGA_DEFAULT_HEIGHT. There is then a #ifdef CONFIG_QEMU... #endif section 
that updates these values from the QEMU FWCfg interface if doing a QEMU 

Just to let you know where I'm going with this next: I have an alpha 
quality patch that adds a <object source="foo" type="fcode" /> tag for 
<library> in build.xml, and also a <fcode ..> tag that invokes toke on 
the source file. This enables me then to add a Fcode-generated file into 
a dictionary using $encode-file in the arch-specific dictionaries.

This gets us to a stage where I can convert drivers/tcx.fs and 
drivers/vga.fs over to Fcode, include them in the final dictionary, and 
have them invoked using byte-load during probe. If you would like to 
review this forthcoming patchset then that would be a great help :)
