A bit browsing rewealed this project:

Linkname: Multi-headed Linux

There you can find all patches which appeared so far for support of
multiple monitors, and the updated multi-mon patch for debianized
kernel 2.0.0


it applies almost cleanly against regular kernel if you skip all debian
stuff, the only one problem is drivers/char/selection.c where are two
rejects. If I find some spare time (and nobody do it before me) I'll fix
it so that it applies cleanly against 2.0.28. Also, I have an bit more
recent release of the multi-mon patch than the one on which debian patch
was based on. It add support that one can use alt-<left,right>arrow to
change montors, some mouse bug fixes and some other stuff.

I have sutffed some of those stuff at if anyone
is interested.
