/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/omapfb_drv.so
from package xserver-xorg-video-omap3 in Debian.

I don't know where the main upstream source is, but here:

https://gitorious.org/gnutoo-s-programs-for-shr/xf86-video-omapfb/source/28c006c94e57ea71df11ec4fff79d7ffcfc4860f:src/omapfb-output-dss.c#L258

is the code which reads
   /sys/devices/platform/omapdss/display0/name
and fails if that file cannot be opened.

Thanks,
NeilBrown
