Console on 16 bits bus

I'm currently trying to integrate the S1D13506 framebuffer driver into
my linux kernel for the 405GP evaluation board (walnut).The S1D13506
controller is directly connected to the external bus of the 405GP and
the data bus width is 16 bits wide.
The problem I have is that all the console accesses to the framebuffer
video ram (in console.c file) are made via 32 bits wide calls
How can I solve this problem?
