I'm developing a framebuffer device for the mpc823 video. I wrote a loadable
module, that initializes the display and registers the new framebuffer.
The only problem is getting a physical contiguos block of memory where to
put the memory buffer. What function should i use to allocate it outside the
kernel? How, inside it?
