Attemt to compile Voodoo Banshee/Vodoo3 DRI in kernel unseccessful. Though
it compiles as module. Steps to reproduce:
1. make menuconfig -> Character devices -> DRM support [*] -> Voodoo
Banshee/Voodoo3 support [*]
2. make bzImage -> error message when compiling tdfx_drv.c, line 132

About the patch - I do not think it's vitally important. Thanks anyway.
THis isn't a bug, it is just as Arjan said. Not a supported
