I think there are some bugs:
- fb0 minor is 0, not 16, fb2 is not 48, but 64.
- the devices should be /dev/fb/0, /dev/fb/1 etc. and symlinks
/dev/fb to /dev/fb/0, /dev/fb0 to /dev/fb/0 etc.
I also don't understand why is there the dev_list array, especially why is
there the num member (it is always NULL) If you think about those
/dev/fb0current and stuff like that, then those are history...
