Hi Linus,

This patch fixes the /dev/fb* entries in devices.txt to conform to the actual
code (which has been there since at least one year).

PLEASE apply this patch! MANY thanks!


Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
