I haven't tried this for a long time. l4con needs access to the graphics
card and then may be it works. There's some output on what's going which
could help. However, I'm not sure how much acceleration it actually is
but blitting etc. should benefit if it works.

No plans so far. fb-drv is a pure frame buffer memory provider for now.
