Series allow simple{fb, drm} drivers to be used on non-x86 EFI platforms | expand

Commit Message

Javier Martinez Canillas June 1, 2021, 2:59 p.m. UTC
The x86 architecture has generic support to register a system framebuffer
platform device. It either registers a "simple-framebuffer" if the config
option CONFIG_X86_SYSFB is enabled, or a legacy VGA/VBE/EFI FB device.

But the code is generic enough to be reused by other architectures and can
be moved out of the arch/x86 directory.

This will allow to also support the simple{fb,drm} drivers on non-x86 EFI
platforms, such as aarch64 where these drivers are only supported with DT.

Changes in v2:
- Use default y and depends on X86 instead doing a select in arch/x86/Kconfig.
- Also enable the SYSFB Kconfig option when COMPILE_TEST.
- Improve commit message to explain why is useful for other arches to use this.
