IEEE 1275 is the Open Firmware spec. Not sure if OF applies to x86 or not

VESA BIOS extensions, aka "video modes better than the original VGA spec's
640x480" (by ... 4 bit color I think?)

Given that VBE is above, I bet this is VGA-spec-only. It's a framebuffer,
more or less, but it's a really low resolution one by today's standards.

Bochs is a virtualization setup, so I *suspect* this one is "hardware"
dependent, in that if you're not running in a bochs VM you won't need it.

Cirrus is definitely an old video chipset. I therefore also suspect this is a
hardware specific driver.
