Slightly unrelated, but what is the state of this driver? I believe
"modern" drivers are supposed to register as a kernel modesetting
driver to the drivers/gpu/drm framwork rather than the traditional

From all I can tell, the vt8500 platform code in the current (v3.6)
version is rather broken due to bitrot, and I think we should take
your code in the fixed version unless Rob has any serious objections.
You have done a great job on cleaning it up and I'd love to see this
all working again in 3.7, even if we have to adapt the bindings
