SubjectRe: short display with 2.1.132-ac3, matroxfb and XF86_SVGA 3.3.3
I have applied the 3.3.3 accelerated fb to XF86_SVGA,
it works ok but it still require "modeline" listed
in XF86_Config, and thus it is not 100% using the currently
configured fb mode (monitor is still resyncing while
swiching between X <---> fb virtual console)

Here is my fb mode (Matrox Millenium I):

options fb0 xres=1152 yres=900 depth=16 pixclock=9091
hslen=288 vslen=3 upper=32 lower=2 left=22 right=32
fh=85 fv=90 mem=4 nopan=1 noinit=1

and the corresponding XF86_Config modeline entry:

ModeLine "1152x900@FBdev" 90.000 1152 1176 1452 1484 \
900 902 905 935

If I don't use any modeline, it will default to "current"
at 640x480, even though my fb0 is 1152x900 :(

The good thing is Sysreq Magic now works and the acceleration
of course...
