I've tried with drm_fbdev_generic_setup() and it works fine with simple
modification. The patch is

But I implement .gem_prime_vmap with a workaround,

--- a/drivers/gpu/drm/mediatek/mtk_drm_gem.c
+++ b/drivers/gpu/drm/mediatek/mtk_drm_gem.c
@@ -280,3 +280,8 @@ int mtk_gem_create_ioctl(struct drm_device *dev,

Current drm_fb_helper depends on drm_client to create fbdev. When
drm_client create drm_client_buffer, it need to vmap to get kernel
vaddr. But I think for fbdev, the vaddr is useless. Do you agree that I
temporarily implement .gem_prime_vmap in such way?

CK
