[PATCHv3 01/10] fbdev: ssd1307fb: fix memory address smem_start.

From: Thomas NiederprÃm
Date: Mon Mar 09 2015 - 18:19:29 EST

the smem_start pointer of the framebuffer info struct needs to hold the
physical address rather than the virtual address. This patch fixes a
driver crash on mmaping the framebuffer memory due to an access to the
memory address.

Note however that the memory allocated by kzalloc is not page aligned,
while the address presented on a mmap call is aligned to the next page
