Don't take this the wrong way, but can we expect framebuffer support to
work from now on?

If the primary/only difference between vger and the official tree is
framebuffer support, and what's in the official tree is older or broken,
it almost makes more sense to remove it than keep old or broken code.

I am by NO MEANS knowledgable in this arena, but just don't like broken
kernels.
