I have ported lcd_2430sdp and lcd_ldp drivers (and also other OMAP2/3
panel drivers, except N800) to the newer omapdss driver
(drivers/video/omap2), and the code is in my for-next branch
(git:// for-next).

I have also worked on removing OMAP2/3 support from the old omapfb
driver, thus making it OMAP1 fb driver. This code is not yet ready, and
won't make it in the next merge window.

Your patch will conflict with both of those changes. Is it ok for you to
drop this patch, and I'll make a new one on top of my changes to clean
up the Makefile in a similar way than you did? The new patch wouldn't
make it in the next merge window, though, but I don't think this patch
is fixing any bigger bug, so perhaps it's not so urgent.
