Which makes me think we should just go the direct route.  No SDL.  No
directfb.  No other funky library which provides us with nothing but
bugs.  Programming fbdev isn't that hard after all.  Especially if you
skip all the (IMHO pointless) video mode switching bits.

Agreed, actually I was thinking the same thing.
The only reason for using a library is to have the color/pixel conversion
functions, that could be useful. However we have many of them already
implemented in qemu so it shouldn't be difficult to roll our own.

Everybody implements its own conversion functions though. It probably makes sense to consolidate that stuff into a small conversion library, probably best based on PixelFormat, and make everybody use that.
