Cool. There are lots of people with a minor interest in having this
happen, but no-one currently motivated to actually start writing the code.
My idea is that by providing a standard API we could let people who want
to do this kind of thing in the kernel do just that while leaving those

Hooking this up to the existing Linux hotplug system would grant even
kernel fbdev drivers access to this logic.
