Spenser, All,

Just a very quick review with obvious comments.

Why grep+awk?
	BITSPERPIXEL="$(fbset |awk '$0~/geom/ {print $6}')"
	YRES="$(fbset |awk '$0~/geom/ {print $3}')"

Use shell maths, it's faster than spwaning 'expr':
        fbset -vyres $((YRES*3))

Easier with awk:
        pvr_maj=$( awk '$2=="pvrsrvkm" { print $1; }' )
Ditto bc_maj.

Are those two majors unpredictable?

If the majors are predicatble, then please, use TI_GFX_DEVICES, see:
        http://buildroot.net/downloads/manual/manual.html#generic-package-reference
and search for LIBFOO_DEVICES

Summarizing our discussion on IRC:
  - the device major is unpredictable
  - the device node in /dev is created automatically by udev/mdev/devtmpfs
  - the device node needs to be created at runtime for static /dev, as
    the major is unpredictable


You don't seem to do anything with bc_maj, BTW.

Please, add a commit log and your SoB-line.
If you're not the author, add the origin to the commit-log, and you
SoB-line anyway.

BTW, a SoB-line is not about authorship, it's about who the patch passed
through:
    http://elinux.org/Developer_Certificate_Of_Origin
    http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/SubmittingPatches#n297
