i ought to have checked more carefully.
i'd added another device code to virge.c:

cpu% diff /n/dump/1998/0328/sys/src/cmd/aux/vga/virge.c virge.c
43a44
> case 0xE101: /* ViRGE/DX */

< if(vga->mode->x > 800 && vga->mode->z == 8)

you should also check that your /sys/src/9/pc/devvga.c and
/sys/src/9/pc/vgas3.c know about linear mode,
otherwise you might be better without the linear=1
