    Thank you for doing this work.

    __sparc_v9__ means CONFIG_SPARC64, if that is not defined it's
    CONFIG_SPARC32, so you could simplify this patch a lot.

    1) Remove __sparc_v9__ ifdefs from asm-sparc64/fb.h
    2) Define fb_mmap_required() to return 0 in asm-sparc64/fb.h
    3) Define fb_mmap_required() to return 1 in asm-sparc/fb.h
    4) Remove all the sparc ifdef stuff you added to linux/fb.h
    5) There won't be a default fb_mmap_required() provided by
    linux/fb.h on platforms other than sparc ones, you'll need
    to provide one in order for the build to work non-sparc since
    this call is unconditional in fbmem.c:

    + if (fb_mmap_required())
    + return -EINVAL;

    With those fixes:
