I applied the whole series of sgiserial patches.

I'm tired of maintaining the dead support for running IRIX's X server on
Linux.  It was never working more than marginally and since Miguel de
Icaza has given up working on that in favor of Gnome the code is just a
maintenance pain.  Worse, probably there's haven a dozen bad bugs hidden
in there allowing users to crash the system or do other sinister stuff.
So if you want to continue your cleanup cruzade by eleminating
drivers/sgi/ - I'm all for it :-)
