[PATCH] ps3: Virtual Frame Buffer Driver

Add the PS3 Virtual Frame Buffer Driver.

As the actual graphics hardware cannot be accessed directly by Linux, ps3fb
uses a virtual frame buffer in main memory.  The actual screen image is copied
to graphics memory by the GPU on every vertical blank, by making a hypervisor
call.

This is the default size (in MiB) of the virtual frame buffer in
the PS3.
The default value can be overridden on the kernel command line
using the "ps3fb" option (e.g. "ps3fb=9M");
