Hello Andrej - thanks for your comments - regarding the connection between
the LCDC (framebuffer) and the LCM for a "video mode change" :
>>2) What's the best way to send a command from the framebuffer driver to the LCM

Andrej - jbt6k74 does already export these to sysfs. The question is whether that
is the best way for the kernel to access its functions internally :
(How) can one access the sysfs from within the kernel? Is there a kernel interface?
Do we have to pass a message out to a user application which can access sysfs?
This last sounds like a nasty way of doing things..
It would be easy (and reasonable for the gta01) to assume there is only one jbt6k74
device and keep a data structure statically in jbt6k74.c. This would allow jbt6k74.c
to EXPORT a kernel function for changing mode which would be fast and easy.
