Update: bogl complains about unknown screen type 2 with both 16 and 256
color display on my Falcon. Mono

The pixel format might be the problem:
include/linux/fb.h:#define FB_TYPE_PACKED_PIXELS 0
include/linux/fb.h:#define FB_TYPE_INTERLEAVED_PLANES 2
is precisely what I get for mono or color modes, respectively.
Packed pixel format is in use for lots of other hardware so I'd assume it
is supported in some way?
