An explanation about why this is possible would be useful here.

This open codes what used to be the fb_is_primary_device() logic before
commit 5ca1479cd35d ("fbdev: Simplify fb_is_primary_device for x86").
But now after that commit there is functional change since the ROM
shadowing check would be dropped.

I believe that's OK and Sima explains in their commit message that
vga_default_device() should be enough and the check is redundant.

Still, I think that this change should be documented in your commit

With that change,
