I don't understand what you want to "hook up". devwsys gives you a 9P
connection to a rio(1)-like window system on top of Xlib. It lets you
to use an X window as a Plan 9 terminal. l9fb, as far as I understood,
gives you a 9P connection to a Linux framebuffer.

It would be nice to have a fb version of libdraw, then we could use
devwsys without X. This is probably not so difficult, something that
could be done in the framework of a GSoC project, for example. You
could maybe build such a thing on top of l9fb, but I don't think this
would be such an improvement over directly using the fb device.
