Thanks, I'm looking at this change in linux-next now.

EXYNOS_VIDEO seems to be a little bit odd.  Can you clarify that for me?
(This is not a change that you introduced.)

In particular, under Graphics support, select Framebuffer Devices.
This lists:
  Support for frame buffer devices -->
  Exynos Video driver support

It appears to me that Exynos either is a Framebuffer Device and should depend
on FB like the other drivers here do OR (actually XOR) it is not a frame buffer
device and it should not be listed here.

Then once that is cleared up :), we don't need 2 levels of menu to get to the
list of FB drivers -- i.e., one of those levels can be removed.

Oh, and if you keep the new menu item "Framebuffer Devices", please spell it
like the other entry (Frame Buffer).

Other than those nits, I like this change very much.  Thanks.
