IIRC, patch for ATI Rage XL without BIOS was floating around a while
ago (kernel 2.4 era?), but never merged to mainline in good shape.
And the halfway codes are removed at kernel 2.6.16.

    [PATCH] fbdev: atyfb: Remove BIOS-less booting
    
    CONFIG_ATYFB_XL_INIT option is broken for a long time.  It will always 
cause a
    kernel hang.
    
    Since no one has fixed this problem for some time now, remove it from atyfb.
