I like it - finally proper driver structure in the year 15 of Indy
support :D

I usually ask submitters to consider if they want to change their newly
exported kernel symbols from EXPORT_SYMBOL to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL.  This
may not be relevant for this platform - I'm just asking all submitters
equally.

Also please cc the drivers/video/ maintainer.

Thanks!
