Hi Bruno,

The comment above seems confusing to me in that it talks about fbcon
and defio schedule.

What I see is that you originally had in picolcd:

> error = register_framebuffer(info);
...
> fb_deferred_io_init(info);

which was a bug because it called register_framebuffer (ie: made the
framebuffer available for use) and only then initialized the defio
handlers which were needed for that framebuffer memory to be used.
Drivers must always call defio_init _before_ register_framebuffer. The
bug fix to picolcd below looks correct because it now does that
sequence in the correct order.

Thanks,
jaya
