xf86-video-amd from OLPC not for public consumption

Holger reported in his blog that he uploaded a backport of the AMD Geode GX/LX X.org module to Debian. He also points out that what he has backported is from a non-Debian source. In case it wasn't obvious to him, there are good reasons why the official Debian module is not from the OLPC branch: the OLPC branch includes OLPC-only code that breaks operation for non-OLPC hardware. This means that the backport package is completely useless for the vast majority of GX/LX hardware on the market. Well done, Holger!
