vgaarb: fix "target=default" passing
Kyle McMartin [Tue, 16 Feb 2010 21:18:37 +0000 (16:18 -0500)]
Commit 77c1ff3982c6b36961725dd19e872a1c07df7f3b fixed the userspace
pointer dereference, but introduced another bug pointed out by Eugene Teo
in RH bug #564264. Instead of comparing the point we were at in the string,
we instead compared the beginning of the string to "default".
