I'm curious if you can determine if a frame buffer is running in greyscale
versus color by giving an ioctl on /dev/ttyE0. My scenario involves a
mac68k with internal video. Using the WSDISPLAYIO_GINFO ioctl I can
determine the bit depth of the frame buffer, but I don't know if it's
running in greyscale.
Should this be determined using the WSDISPLAYIO_GTYPE ioctl and having it
return a different display type for greyscale versus color?
If this is the case, I'd have to add entries for both mac68k grey and
color modes to the WSDISPLAY_TYPE_* list.
Yay or neigh?
