      Description

      When launching apps on an embedded device, like the Raspberry Pi, remotely with the linuxfb platform plugin, the result is less than ideal. The graphics mode switch fails, the terminal keyboard is not disabled, the terminal and the application image will flash back and forth on each keystroke, etc.

      This is because the tty device based operations do not work in this case.

      The same problem appears with eglfs and kms too with regards to the terminal keyboard input. Assuming that ioctl'ing fd 0 is sufficient is somewhat incorrect.
