Why do we even need a fbdev layer then!!! We might as well remove it

Its totally destroy's my dream of a real multidesktop OS :-( This is why
I'm so upset. Using userland libraries to do multidesktop OS is a really

different systems with different configurations. Now I realize it will die
a painful death.
