Thanks, I queued this for v4.15 with a trivial fix for:

>  #else
> -static inline void pxa3xx_gcu_init_debug_timer(void) {}
> +static inline void pxa3xx_gcu_init_debug_timer(struct pxa3xx_gcu_priv *) {}
>  #endif

which caused:

drivers/video/fbdev/pxa3xx-gcu.c: In function ‘pxa3xx_gcu_init_debug_timer’:
drivers/video/fbdev/pxa3xx-gcu.c:534:133: error: parameter name omitted
make[3]: *** [drivers/video/fbdev/pxa3xx-gcu.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

for the non-debug case.

I also queued the original fbdev conversion patch on top of this one.
