NAME
       fbdevhw - os-specific submodule for framebuffer device access

DESCRIPTION
       fbdevhw provides functions for talking to a framebuffer device.  It is
       os-specific.  It is a submodule used by other video drivers.  A fbdevhw
       module is currently available for linux framebuffer devices.

       fbdev(4) is a non-accelerated driver which runs on top of the fbdevhw
       module.  fbdevhw can be used by other drivers too, this is usually
       activated with `Option "UseFBDev"' in the device section.
