The 'set gfxpayload=keep' facility in GRUB provides smooth graphical
handover to the Linux kernel.  Unfortunately, this does not work on all
systems, resulting in a black or corrupt display.  This package provides a
blacklist of PCI IDs which fail.
We maintain this separately from GRUB because it is likely to be updated on
a different schedule.
