Not how much/whether this will help. I'd been running a dual screen setup
using Xinerama. The xorg.conf file became totally useless with 6.9 with no
output to the external monitor. I suspected, but was never able to pin it to
a radeon bug interacting with a 7500 M7 card.
I recently obtained this xorg.file from Marius Gedminas on the Thinkpad
mailing list. So far MergedFB seems to work as advertised.
