Presenting the brand new Matrox Parhelia driver

Today - well, most of the work has been done in the last few hours which would mean yesterday as well - I finished the newest unofficial mtx driver version, v1.4.4.3.

The main reason for the new driver version was a posting in the Matrox General Linux Support Forum where a user mentioned, that the current unofficial driver version doesn't compile on 2.6.19-rc3 anymore.
The reason for this simply was that the kernel developers finally got rid of <linux/config.h> in favour of <linux/autoconf.h>. Due to the fact that I had some time yesterday, I fixed some other stuff in the q'n'd release.

  * Fixed a typo in an informational output string
  * Fixed a warning during the compile process
  * Fixed the issue with GFP_DMA32 that prevented to build on kernels prior to 2.6.18
  * Fixed the above mentioned issue with 2.6.19-rc3
  * Renamed the installer package according to the new naming scheme introduced by the first
    unofficial mga driver

Still not fixed is the new installer promised for, but maybe it will be part of
