SubjectNvidiafb issues on Inspiron 8100
Date
Hi Antonino,

I am having the following issues on my Dell Inspiron 8100. They are not
new but I just got around to report them.

With CONFIG_FB_NVIDIA_I2C I get 1600x1200 resolution but pixels
"swarming" and it is unuseable. There are following messages in
dmesg (note complaints from i2c):

If I disable CONFIG_FB_NVIDIA_I2C and enable CONFIG_FIRMWARE_EDID then
it looks like I have a virtual screen with large font extending past
physical. If I do:

fbset 1024x768-60
fbset 1600x1200-60

everything is back to normal.

And below a cosmetic patch for you...

Thank you.
