Hi. Sorry, I've been out of action for personal reasons.

I don't have an edb to test this, but suggest you compare with the
simone.c board file, which has similar code to enable the fb.
Compared to the mainline code in 2.6.36, I use just one patch, which
defines the working video modes. I attach it for reference.
