The comment "Milkymist Extensions" only means that those ioctls are not part of
the Linux API and that so far only the Milkymist framebuffer driver implements
them. Feel free to remove or rephrase it, I do not care.

I'm not using the Linux API because it takes more time to understand and
implement it than would be reasonably needed to get trivial video mode
switching (and the other similarly trivial options) to work.

Most of the (very simple) framebuffer driver is contained in that single C
source file I pointed to.

If you do not like those ioctls, I can move them to a BSP-specific header.
