Indeed, they seem to have gone missing somehow from
debian/config/sparc/config where there's just:

# CONFIG_FB_LEO is not set
# CONFIG_FB_S1D13XXX is not set

whereas in the same source we have arch/sparc/configs/sparc64_defconfig
where there's:

# CONFIG_FB_LEO is not set
# CONFIG_FB_S1D13XXX is not set

I'm filing a bug report with this message, thanks for the exact hint.

As for the new driver that Dave mentioned as an attachment, it's
already in mainline at:
That should apply pretty easily to .32 stable.

I'm not sure offhand what the Debian policy is about tracking linux-stable
vs. adding new code, but either way this seems pretty uncontroversial -
it's a separate new driver which won't hurt any existing users, because
its OF match of "SUNW,gfb" simply does not overlap with anything else
in drivers/video/.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
