os-specific submodule for framebuffer device access


fbdevhw provides functions for talking to a framebuffer device.  It is os-specific.  It is a submodule used by other video drivers. A fbdevhw module is currently available for linux framebuffer devices.

fbdev(4) is a non-accelerated driver which runs on top of the fbdevhw module.  fbdevhw can be used by other drivers too, this is usually activated with `Option "UseFBDev"' in the device section.
