the objection of this patch series is to clean the output device 
handling up. The end result should be saner code (not setting devices 
that do not exist) as well as more powerfull control over existing 
devices and easier addition of new devices.
This is the first part doing some structural changes and using those to 
switch which of the 2 display data sources (IGA1 or IGA2) is used.
Things that are still missing and (hopefully) will come in follow up 
series are device enable/disable following the same design and exporting 
this flexability in an easy to use way to userspace.

These patches can also be found at
	git:// viafb-s2v1

Some tests were performed on CLE266, VX800 and VX855.

Any opinions/suggestions?
