unfortunatly, I don't think this will even happen with fbdev.
fbdev's job is just mode setting and information collecting.
some minor accelerations come with bitblt, but this may not be
general use (does the tux boot logo).
However, a library could make use of the information provided by
fbdev to accelerate in userspace.
