It means that it doesn't try to start the sticon/stifb driver for your card.
Change the "#if 1" to "#if 0" in drivers/video/sti/sticore.c, line 926, recompile
and boot again - then please let me know if it crashes for you or not.
I once inserted that check because the sticon/stifb driver crashes with the 
A4977A Visualize EG PCI card in my c3000. If it works for you we could try
to find a better solution.
