Define "supported".  I believe for PowerPC in RHEL we build the matroxfb
driver for this card, so that plus the fbdev driver for X is what you
get there.  I'm not sure what would happen on Fedora for that, probably
aligning it with RHEL makes sense.  On x86 you'd get vesa.

But in any of those cases there's no acceleration code involved, so
"supported" could reaally only mean "lights up and sets modes".

The mgag200 driver is, at the moment, only a driver for server variants
of the G200 (G200SE, G200WB, etc).  Actual G200, as well as G400 G450
and G550, are not driven by the mgag200 driver at this time.
