Well...actually I think we need the following new names:
1. switch_ntsc : To tell the bt869 to output either ntsc or pal
(1=NTSC, 0=PAL)
2. switch_colorbars : 1 to turn on colorbars calibration screen and 0
to turn it off
3. change_colordepth : To change the color depth (for Voodoo3 there's
only 16 and 24bit for TV-Out-Mode, other would have 32bit here, too)
4. change_resolution[1-2] : 1 for the width(x) and 2 for the height(y)
5. switch_half_resolution : Switch to turn on the Half-Resolution-Mode
(this is a special mode which can't be merged with switch_resolution!)
6. switch_output_format : 2=RGB, 1=SVIDEO, 0=Composite

There's also a status[0-2] in there (read-only), but I couldn't figure
out what exactly this is for. It is used but as it seems it's only for
driver-internal things and not really for the end-user...Perhaps you could
take a look over it!
