xserver-xorg-video-omapfb is using the omapfb kernel interface, it's
a slighly advanced omap specific version of xserver-xorg-video-fbdev
(which also works on omap). xserver-xorg-video-omap3 is omapfb, but
with enabled NEON instruction set during compilation. It has been
introduced before armhf existed.

None of these support KMS, XRandR or EXA. On x86 you can compare
them with xserver-xorg-video-vesa.

The new driver supports KMS, XRandR, EXA & 3D (but needs a non-free
plugin for some of these tasks, like 3D).
