yes, there is a sgx530 in there.

And for my understanding, does the hw-accelerated driver work in
conjunction with the omap dss or will it serve as a replacement?

The latest officially tested / released version seems to be
"Based on the IMG Linux 1.9 DDK (1.9ED2188537).". It seems
am317 is still included in later version though.

So what would be a wise thing to do, undust some old ti kernel
and try to understand how it used to work?

If you don't want all git users to be able to edit the wiki you need
Settings -> Collaborators and teams

and optional Settings -> Branches to protect the ones you really
care about.

Also please consider setting the default branch to letux-pvrsrvkm.
