I might have got confused, but it looks to me like patches 27 and 28
basically undo patch 26: in 26 you moved code to hd44780 and wrote a
fallback, just to later delete that code.

I seem to remember that the reason for the clear_fast() implementation
is that the default clear_display() is quite slow for small displays,
compared to what can be achieved by just filling the display with spaces
(in the order of tens of milliseconds vs hundreds of microseconds). But
I could be mistaken given how old this is, so please take my comment
with a grain of salt.

Willy
