Hi Linus,

This patch brings the documentation for /dev/fb* in sync with the
implementation.

The implementation behaves like this since nearly ca. 1.5 years.
This patch is in Alan's tree since nearly 6 months.

Thanks for applying!


Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

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