Add udlfb kernel module

Reported by: markzzzsmith@… Owned by: developers

I have a Display Link USB powered monitor that I'd like to be able use with a device running OpenWRT. Would it be possible to add the udlfb kernel module to OpenWRT?

Some details about Display Link USB devices under Linux are at:

Just in case it matters, I have one of these:

I've plugged it into the USB port on my TP-LINK MR3020 running OpenWRT. It powered up, however as the udlfb module is not available, there was not video output. I think these sorts of small, USB powered monitors could be useful as status etc. displays for OpenWRT devices with a USB port.

Here's something that will give you a good start at udlfb use. I haven't tried it on anything other that my ALiX 3D3 so IMMV. Save the attached file in package/kernel/modules directory. Run 'make menuconfig' - You will then find the new "Kernel modules -> Framebuffer Support" menu items.
