I tried to make these two drivers as similar as possible concerning the CF633.
So I suggest to use the CFontzPacket driver for the CF633.

CF provided me with such a board But I did not get round to
trying it since I use my displays externally with USB.

I do not mind killing the original 633 driver and adding Steward's driver
with temp and fan support instead (if possible with CF631& CF635 support
as well)

Or alternatively have the CFontzPacket driver integrate Stewards patches
so that they can be enabled/disabled at compile time.
