parentvideo/console: Update BIOS dates list for GPD win console rotation DMI quirk (diff)
Merge tag 'fbdev-v4.14' of git://github.com/bzolnier/linux
Pull fbdev updates from Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz: - make fbcon a built-time depency for fbdev (fbcon was tristate option before, now it is a bool) - this is a first step in preparations for making console_lock usage saner (currently it acts like the BKL for all things fbdev/fbcon) (Daniel Vetter) - add fbcon=margin:<color> command line option to select the fbcon margin color (David Lechner) - add DMI quirk table for x86 systems which need fbcon rotation (devices like Asus T100HA, GPD Pocket, the GPD win and the I.T.Works TW891) (Hans de Goede) - fix 1bpp logo support for unusual width (needed by LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3) (David Lechner) - enable Xilinx FB driver for ARM ZynqMP platform (Michal Simek) - fix use after free in the error path of udlfb driver (Anton Vasilyev) - fix error return code handling in pxa3xx_gcu driver (Gustavo A. R. Silva) - fix bootparams.screeninfo arguments checking in vgacon (Jan H. Schönherr) - do not leak uninitialized padding in clk to userspace in the debug code of atyfb driver (Vladis Dronov) - fix compiler warnings in fbcon code and matroxfb driver (Arnd Bergmann) - convert fbdev susbsytem to using %pOF instead of full_name (Rob Herring) - structures constifications (Arvind Yadav, Bhumika Goyal, Gustavo A. R. Silva, Julia Lawall) - misc cleanups (Gustavo A. R.
