The confusion is probably not your fault this time :-).  Don't use
the old lcd driver that has my name in it.  That was just something
I hacked together one day for testing.  I posted it so someone that
knew something about frame buffers would really write one.

Fortunately, someone did.  I believe it was Joe Green from MontaVista
that did a real framebuffer driver.  Go to the MontaVista web site
and find the CDK 1.2 with the 2.2.14 kernel.
