Since kdrive, in particular Xfbdev has been dropped, this has left a
hole in support for MONO (1bpp) framebuffer devices. I've been using
Xfbdev for a picolcd mono matrix device for a few years.
The Xorg fbdev driver only supports a minimum of 8bpp framebuffer
formats which wasn't a problem given the existance of Xfbdev, but now
leaves a whole class of hardware unsupportable.
