Fbdev issue after the drm updates 'drm-next-2023-10-31-1'

I have found out that fbdev no longer works with virtio-gpu-pci and 
virtio-vga. It is not a problem with the penguin logos.

Could you please check fbdev in QEMU virtual machines with 
virtio-gpu-pci and virtio-vga graphics?

Many thanks in advance,
