All of the xf86-video-sun* drivers can be safely removed, even the cg6,
they're Sun workstation (SPARC) specific. And they're SBUS or UPA which
is a propietary Sun bus.
C&T, Rendition and Tseng haven't produced any video chip like for ages
now (10+ years). They don't even exist anymore.
For SiS (non-USB) i think i still got one ebox2300 (mini pc) that uses
one of those if it needs testing - though it was working last time i
tried with buildroot so no reason to think it broke.
