So to add such an "I am crap" flag my idea would be to add an
.fb_handle_damage to struct fb_ops and then call that (if exists)
whenever something was changed.

I was thinking much higher level - ie at the printk kind of level

My patch (for udlfb) follows as an reply to this message. If that patch
is ok, it should be applied to smscufx too (I would make it). In regard
to udl I don't know, I haven't had a deeper look at it nor used it up to

Looks pretty clean as a solution to me.

Thanks and sorry for the two empty lines in the patch. I swear I had a look at the patch before sending it out, but haven't seen them.

So should I make the same patch for smscufx and while beeing there, send out at v2 without those 2 empty lines?
