[Exherbo-dev] Removing X drivers for obsolete hardware

A lot of drivers in the tree are incompatible with the latest stable
xorg-server (0.14.1). I'm not really motivated to bump and test those
drivers before the unmask because I think most of them are simply
obsolete or unneeded.

Here is the list of the broken ones:
xf86-input-wacom
xf86-video-apm
xf86-video-ark
xf86-video-ast
xf86-video-chips
xf86-video-dummy
xf86-video-fbdev
xf86-video-glint
xf86-video-i128
xf86-video-i740
xf86-video-mach64
xf86-video-mga
xf86-video-openchrome
xf86-video-neomagic
xf86-video-newport
xf86-video-r128
xf86-video-rendition
xf86-video-s3
xf86-video-s3virge
xf86-video-savage
xf86-video-siliconmotion
xf86-video-sis
xf86-video-sisusb
xf86-video-sunffb
xf86-video-tdfx
xf86-video-tga
xf86-video-trident
xf86-video-tseng
xf86-video-vesa
xf86-video-vmware
xf86-video-voodoo

Please let me know which one are still required or bump them
yourself. I will unmask 1.14 next weekend and mask the remaining
drivers as broken and remove them after a reasonable time.
