I don't know the code, don't have a mmu-less sytem, and never used
fbdev, so I can just comment on the content of the patch.
All I can say is that this patch at least does make the code easier to
read, so I'm tempted to apply it.

Benjamin Z., you are probably a better fit to test it, what  do you
think about it?
