Bug Description

1.Install Ubuntu 16.04 (with a custom kernel adding the mga driver support) and boot into system with VGA monitor
2.Run check-box "Test X driver/version"
3.Test result got failed below:
ERROR: No video driver loaded! Possibly in failsafe mode!
------------- VIDEO DRIVER INFORMATION -------------
------------- HYBRID GRAPHICS CHECK ----------------
Graphics Chipset: Unknown (102b:0536)
Loaded DDX Drivers: mga, modesetting, fbdev, vesa
Hybrid Graphics: no

Expected results: Test result should be pass.

Actual results: Test result failed.


This specific test case should not have failed as the mga driver was actually loaded and in proper use.
