Subject[PATCH 1/5] viafb: deprecate private ioctls
viafb: deprecate private ioctls

This patch prints a warning when viafb ioctls are called. Those
should not be used as their exact meaning is sometimes unknown and
they in parts duplicate functionality present in the framebuffer
There is no known user of these ioctls.
