Subject[RFC PATCH v2 03/13] bootsplash: Flush framebuffer after drawing
Date
Framebuffers with deferred I/O need to be flushed to the screen
explicitly, since we use neither the mmap nor the file I/O abstractions
that handle this for userspace FB clients.

Example: xenfb

Some framebuffer drivers implement lazy access to the screen without
actually exposing a fbdefio interface - we also match some known ones,
currently:
- ast
- cirrus
- mgag200
