xorg fbdev support for < 8 bits per pixel

Just saw the thread regarding kdrive being >/< obsolete. Pity spent a
few weeks trying to bring up Xfbdev :-(
Anyway, just would like to find out, how much effort it would take to
add support for devices with 1/2 bits/pixel depth. I noticed that the
current xorg-fbdev implementation doesn't support these depths.
Just to add context to the question, I'm working on an embedded device
with a monochrome LCD. The CPU can generate grayscale images by upping
the frame-rate and modulating the pixels but the hardware implementation
limits the max FR so I can only support about 2 bits per pixel depth.
Would anyone be able to provide some quick info on the areas I need to
focus on please?
