[RFC PATCH 3/3] staging: remove fbtft

Unfortunately, the framebuffer maintainer Tomi Valkeinen wants to
remove fbtft from drivers staging directory in the Linux kernel
source. The creator of fbtft, Noralf, is working on a potential
successor named TinyDRM.

If tinydrm is not ready by the time fbtft is removed, then we'll have
to go back to adding these fbtft drivers as patch to the BeagleBone
kernel.

thanks,

Jason/Drew,

We should be in a good shape for v4.9.x-ti/v4.9.x-lts, as this will be
targeting v4.10.x, but i'll be reverting it for our beagleboard.org
users till tinydrm is ready to replace it..

Regards,

Jason/Drew,

I've just added tinydrm to our builds: (currently building)

https://github.com/notro/tinydrm

https://github.com/RobertCNelson/linux-dev/commit/01944b78b9559526502db9e5e9c94a947fd56853

If this builds, i'll add it all the v4.9.0-rc7 builds this weekend..

Regards,

Thanks, I look forward to trying out tinydrm. I have a pretty good
selection of SPI displays to test with.
