Thanks for the report.

Apparently not all architectures define a screen_info, this was reported for
parisc but it's also true for other arches: arc, m68k, microblaze, openrisc
and s390.

The Kconfig symbol is built when COMPILE_TEST is enabled, but that shouldn't
be done for this reason and instead only built for the arches that need it:

config SYSFB
default y
depends on X86 || ARM || ARM64 || RISCV || COMPILE_TEST

I'll post a patch later.
