      Death to mfb.
      ... and stay dead.

This is a clear statement, but I'm a bit surprised X won't support a whole 
class of devices, which are still in use in embedded devices. 

What's the right way of implementing a monochrome framebuffer driver? Using 
8bpp with fbdev and do the mapping in the kernel, or write an x driver?

Best Regards
