Accelerated support is provided for [...] Rage Mobility (LM, LN,
LR, LS) (by the XF86_Mach64 server).
Accelerated support is provided for the Rage 128 chips by the
"r128" driver. Accelerated support is provided for the Mach64
Rage variants by the "ati" driver. Unaccelerated support is
provided for all of the others except the Mach8 and some early
Mach32 chips by the "ati" driver.
All chips supported in 3.3.6 are supported in 4.0.1 except for
Mach8 and some old Mach32 chips. The support in 4.0.1 is,
however, unaccelerated for all chips except the Mach64, Rage and
Rage 128 variants.
But, personally, i can't see the difference between accelerated
3.3.6 and unaccelerated 4.0.1.
