map: maps framebuffer devices to VCs. E.g. I use

	video=pm2fb:... video=amifb:... video=map:000011

So pm2fb is fb0 and amifb fb1, and VCs 1-4 are handled by pm2fb while 5 and
six are handled by amifb. Hope you get the idea.

I guess it doesn't make sense to mix map: with device specific options because
it affects all devices.

If only I knew what vc: is for :)
