fbdev: add fb_read/fb_write functions for framebuffers in system RAM
Antonino A. Daplas [Tue, 8 May 2007 07:39:03 +0000 (00:39 -0700)]
The functions fb_read() and fb_write in fbmem.c assume that the framebuffer
is in IO memory.  However, we have 3 drivers (hecubafb, arcfb, and vfb)
where the framebuffer is allocated from system RAM (via vmalloc). Using
__raw_read/__raw_write (fb_readl/fb_writel) for these drivers is
illegal, especially in other platforms.

Create file read and write methods for these types of drivers.  These are
named fb_sys_read() and fb_sys_write().
