* Simple-Framebuffer support
* Create a platform-device for any available boot framebuffer. The
* simple-framebuffer platform device is already available on DT systems, so
* this module parses the global "screen_info" object and creates a suitable
* platform device compatible with the "simple-framebuffer" DT object. If
* the framebuffer is incompatible, we instead create a legacy
* "vesa-framebuffer", "efi-framebuffer" or "platform-framebuffer" device and
* pass the screen_info as platform_data. This allows legacy drivers
* to pick these devices up without messing with simple-framebuffer drivers.
* The global "screen_info" is still valid at all times.
* If CONFIG_SYSFB_SIMPLEFB is not selected, never register "simple-framebuffer"
* platform devices, but only use legacy framebuffer devices for
* backwards compatibility.
* TODO: We set the dev_id field of all platform-devices to 0. This allows
* other OF/DT parsers to create such devices, too. However, they must
* start at offset 1 for this to work.
