Unfortunately there is no easy answer to that. Out of the box the
Realview machines emulated by qemu are supported by L4Re which means
there is a framebuffer and input driver. For other platforms such as
Exynos we don't have or are not free to release drivers (yet).

Do you have a specific platform in mind which we may consider for
broader support?
