The changes below break compilation for omapdss and omapfb: dss_debug
and omapfb_debug are declared in dss.h and omapfb.h, and those
declarations are not changed, resulting in conflicting types error.

Perhaps extra care should be taken in cases where the variable in
question is not declared as static.
