Thanks for that.

No, but I haven't tried yet. I am tempted to give it a go, though. I
guess this "headless Linux" term has scared some backers, who had more
associations with Sleepy Hollow than with a serial terminal ;-)

Can you sketch (or point me to) what I need to do? Just a
simple-framebuffer DT node?
I take it that the driver does not depend on any kind of U-Boot
initialisation, but instead takes care of this itself?

And would this pave the way for fbturbo also?

Please excuse my probably silly questions, I am more of a headless
horseman ;-)
