Ignore framebuffer in hwcomposer_viv

we're running Android 4.4.3_2.0.0-ga on a custom imx6dl board with two displays. I'm having a issue at boot where hwcomposer_viv crashes when trying to initialize the framebuffers. I only want hwcomposer_viv to look at the first framebuffer fb0, and skip the other one (in this case fb2). Is there any way this can be done?


If I rename the /dev/graphics/fb2 to something else it works fine, but that's a rather crude workaround.


I assume that the source for hwcomposer_viv is not available (?) so it's rather hard to debug.


Any ideas?
