Ok, agreed, it's not really a kernel bug. Maybe i'm a bit too sneaky  
and pushy here, because i had some "fun" with a 4 display system two  
days ago.

But the change to the kernel is rather minimal and looks simple and  
safe to me.
Anyway, the sooner this patch or a new ioctl goes in, the better.
