It doesn't know or care what the console looks like.
All it knows is what information it gets via ioctl(WSDISPLAYIO_GINFO), it has 
to be valid while the wsdisplay driver is in WSDISPLAYIO_MODE_MAPPED.
So, what your driver does in WSDISPLAYIO_MODE_EMUL is its own business and 
nobody else's.

What I'm trying to say here is, you don't need to worry about this, wsfb has no 
way to know if there is a difference and if there was one it wouldn't care ;)

have fun
