Still no, because it would mean different behaviour for arm/komeda
compared to everyone else. And we really don't want this, because this
would completely break flicker-less vt-switching.

Currently the only fallback for this case is the lastclose handler, which
atm just restores fbcon/fbdev. If you want to change/extend that to work
without fbdev, then that's the place to do the change. And across _all_
drm kms drivers, so that we have consistent behaviour.

kms is a cross-vendor api, vendor hacks are very, very much not cool.
