Meaning fb0 usually is the one with your consoles on it (unless you mapped
them to another one), the rest follows in order of the devices being
probed by the kernel. The ordering of devices is defined by the order the
*fb_init calls appear in the source, and the exact order is still being
worked on as far as I understood Geert.
I think there's no way to change the device ordering at boot time ...
