Subject[PATCH 2/2] simplefb: use write-combined remapping
Date
Framebuffers shouldn't be cached and it is usually very uncommon to read
them. Therefore, use ioremap_wc() to get significant speed improvements on
systems which provide it. On all other systems it's aliased to
ioremap_nocache() which is also fine.
