Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.9 07/35] hyperv_fb: Update screen_info after removing old framebuffer
Date
From: Kairui Song <kasong@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 3cb73bc3fa2a3cb80b88aa63b48409939e0d996b ]

On gen2 HyperV VM, hyperv_fb will remove the old framebuffer, and the
new allocated framebuffer address could be at a differnt location,
and it might be no longer a VGA framebuffer.

Update screen_info so that after kexec the kernel won't try to reuse
the old invalid/stale framebuffer address as VGA, corrupting memory.

[ mingo: Tidied up the changelog. ]
