I think just the sequence that actually makes the machine work; the
scarier patches are those which reduce the mode setting time from 5-10s
down to .7s.
Is this stretching the bounds of what is acceptable for -stable? Would
it look better as a single patch, instead of 14 separate ones?

Let me know what you think; they'll be queued for 3.2 once they've
gotten review and (I hope) more testing. It's Jesse's fault there are
so many little patches; he asked me to split things up into separate
functional changes. It's either that, or I'm just looking to increase
the number of patches I have in the kernel.

I'd rather have a 'regular' PC; getting Debian installed on this machine
was no picnic. But, I haven't seen anything else in this form factor
that includes a display port connector.
