Perhaps you ought to check out SVGA LIB

If you have a framebuffer, you ought to have a device and have the
framebuffer mapped into memory somewhere. I would think at least. Or you
ought to have a device to communicate with it. But I would think that
the svgalib ought to abstract all that for you. ;-)
