Screen Implementation for Plan 9 on the Raspberry Pi

Research
Adding hardware and touch screen implementations to Plan9 for the Raspberry Pi.
The Plan9 operating system was developed by Bell Labs in the late 1980s. While not used commercially, it is popular for its unique design and research purposes. In 2012, Richard Miller ported it to the Raspberry Pi. This became a popular platform for the operating system. 

The port does not have implementations for many parts of the Pi4 hardware. This project focuses on first adding the functionality to use the Raspberry Pi screen with Plan9. Then further exploring how to implement the display's touchscreen in a way that compliments Plan9's unique usage of the mouse, then generalizing this interaction to work with an array of displays.
