Linux Kernel Developers Discuss Dropping FBDEV Staging Drivers

Toward the end of November was a discussion that started about potentially dropping all of the FBDEV Linux kernel drivers that are currently in the staging area, but it doesn’t look like that will go through, at least until the relevant hardware has seen basic DRM driver ports.

For years there have been calls to kill FBDEV in the Linux kernel but it has yet to happen while FBDEV these days sees little movement.
