Oops. Pilot error. Never mind...
sparc64/creator won't build without the one in dev/fb included, and
the one in dev/fb doesn't correctly recognize the card as a Creator-3D
if sparc64/creator isn't included in the kernel (though in this case
the kernel does compile). So, it does seem to be one driver. It just
doesn't seem to like the Creator-3D's that are in the Ultra-10's.
