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.
