DESCRIPTION

The bwtwo interface provides access to Sun monochrome memory frame buffers. It supports the ioctls described in fbio.4s

If flags 0x1 is specified, frame buffer write operations are buffered through regular high-speed RAM. This ``copy memory'' mode of operation speeds frame buffer accesses, but consumes an extra 128K bytes of memory. Only Sun-3/75, Sun-3/140, and Sun-3/160 systems support copy memory; on other systems a warning message is printed and the flag is ignored.

Reading or writing to the frame buffer is not allowed -- you must use the mmap.2 system call to map the board into your address space.
