[lcdproc] display update speed

What's needed is a routine that decides how much is different and if greater
than say 30% does a complete screen refresh.
perhaps by incrementing a change counter when writing to the frame buffer?

also some sort of re-init might be handy for if the display gets out of

if you have any code ideas, I'm welcome to see them :)

cya, Andrew...
