/*
 * Simple-Framebuffer support for x86 systems
 * 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_X86_SYSFB is not selected, we 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 x86 OF/DT parsers to create such devices, too. However, they must
 * start at offset 1 for this to work.
