More seriously, I feel the only value in this patch is in the ieee1275

Yes, that's interesting. We have ieee1275 framebuffer support on ppc but
it fails and hence is disabled on sparc. Expecting this patch will allow
me to find out why.
Actually there was nothing wrong with ieee1275_fb and it works on sparc. The problem is that sparc64 code allocates only 2MiB at most for heap which is small for graphics. I'll see if there is a way to allocate more safely.
