The Documentation/arm/OMAP/DSS document is for omapfb driver, which is
deprecated by the omapdrm driver. I haven't maintained omapfb for some
time now, but I guess it still works ok. I hope we can drop omapfb at
some point in the future.

There probably are still omapfb users out there, so the ABI is valid,
but I'd say it's quite at the bottom of the priority list.
