There was libdlo which was intended to allow USB to VGA (more specifically usb monitors) which I believe has now been pushed into the kernel as a framebuffer device so in theory you should be ok if your devices kernel is reasonably recent as to the specific version I'm currently awaiting a response from the libdlo mailing list on that matter.
