    Hi James,

    The 2.5.59 version of the rivafb driver has some strange effects on my screen.
    The leftmost ~5 pixels of each line are displaced to the right side of the screen,
    so that the remainder of the screen is shifted ~5 pixels left, i.e. it's like
    the screen has been rotated left a bit. 2.5.58 was alright.

    If you've got a patch for this issue, I'll test it.
