Android's FVP configuration still uses FBDEV. While it would be great
to see it migrated to DRM, this first requires resolving a design
incompatibility between Android's composer and DRM devices that only
support software rendering. I proposed a patch that would help resolve
this [1], but there was disagreement about the approach and I haven't
had time to get back to this.

Can this please be reverted until FVP on Android can be migrated to DRM?
