L4Android/L4Linux Beagleboard framebuffer and driver

L4Android is booting up and running on my BeagleBoard (rev. C4),
although in command line mode only. So it would be nice getting even the
framebuffer to work, in order to see the Android GUI over video output.
As it is now, the framebuffer seems loading at boot time, but I don't
get any video output from HDMI/DVI neither from the touchscreen
(Beagletouch from Liquidware). Please see  for the bootstrap log.
Maybe this is due the missing drivers in the kernel, since when
configuring (ie. menuconfig) the l4android kernel, I see 'System type'
pointing to 'L4Linux', but some OMAP3 related drivers are only visible
and thus available, when 'TI_OMAP' is selected in the 'System type'
Is there a way to build Linux for L4 as target, but including OMAP3
I did not found any docs on this topic.
Is it possible to load linux drivers without having to modify the
underlying parts (fiasco/L4Re)? I mean do I have to add something to my
omap3.devs file, or are the linux driver able to interact directly with
the hardware on board?
So far, you can see my arm-omap3.devs file here .
Am I missing something important in that device file? Since I copied it
from the original L4Re source directory.
