	Hi all,

This patch series optimizes console operations on ssd1307fb, after the
customary fixes and cleanups.

Currently, each screen update triggers an I2C transfer of all screen
data, up to 1 KiB of data for a 128x64 display, which takes at least 20
ms in Fast mode.  While many displays are smaller, and thus require less
data to be transferred, 20 ms is still an optimistic value, as the
actual data transfer may be much slower, especially on bitbanged I2C
drivers.  After this series, the amount of data transfer is reduced, as
fillrect, copyarea, and imageblit only update the rectangle that
changed.

This has been tested on an Adafruit FeatherWing OLED with an SSD1306
controller and a 128x32 OLED, connected to an OrangeCrab ECP5 FPGA board
running a 64 MHz VexRiscv RISC-V softcore, where it reduced the CPU
usage for blinking the cursor from more than 70% to ca. 10%.

Thanks for your comments!

Make ssd1307fb_update_display() return an error code, so callers that
can handle failures can propagate it.

Simplify the nested loops to handle conversion from linear frame buffer
to ssd1307 page layout:
  1. Move last page handling one level up, as the value of "m" is the
     same inside a page,
  2. array->data[] is filled linearly, so there is no need to
     recalculate array_idx over and over again; a simple increment is
     sufficient.

Currently, each screen update triggers an I2C transfer of all screen
data, up to 1 KiB of data for a 128x64 display, which takes at least 20
ms in Fast mode.

Reduce the amount of transferred data by only updating the rectangle
that changed.  Remove the call to ssd1307fb_set_address_range() during
initialization, as ssd1307fb_update_rect() now takes care of that.

Note that for now the optimized operation is only used for fillrect,
copyarea, and imageblit, which are used by fbcon.

Cache the column and page ranges, to avoid doing unneeded I2C transfers
when the values haven't changed.

"the loop" is the j-loop?
If m is less than 8 for the last page, it should be less than 8 for
all iterations of j, as all last bytes in each "line" (visible
row) are partial, cfr. the comments above the code, explaining the
representation of the screen.

I agree.
Originally, before I removed the call during initialization, there were
two calls to this function, so it made sense to have a single function.

No it's not "(height + y) % 8" is wrong.

Better if I reorder the operands like below?

    unsigned int pages = DIV_ROUND_UP(y % 8 + height, 8);

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.

I think the bits that are missing for that are
