DisplayLink USB 2.0 FB driver removal
December 10, 2020 03:51PM
DisplayLink USB 2.0 display adapters driver (UDLFB driver) will be removed in future kernel.

https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2020-November/289574.html

Not sure when this will be in effect, but it will. UDL DRM driver is the replacement. But I guess a lot of old embedded systems still reply on UDLFB to drive a USB monitor.

I know! we have a similar situation with the HP T5325 and T5335z. The old Dove FB is no longer usabe in the new kernel (I attempted to bring it back but realized it is not worth it). So DRM or nothing. In a way, it is good for us to figure out how to use it on T5335z because it will be a valuable experience for furture hacks.

For the DisplayLink, people who try to use it in latest kernel will hopefully have a place where they can get helps.
