Benefits, for users with a SMI SM720 VGA BIOS, particularly on the
MB-60470 are:

The SMI SM720 VGA BIOS won't turn on the CRT without smi_157f14().

smi_157f02() tells the VGA BIOS to configure output on the VGA CRT
connector in the native mode, rather than a scaled-to-fit-panel mode.

While the MB-60470 has both VGA and LCD outputs, I've only been
able to test with the VGA output.

Can I assume you want something like this in the commit message?
