Ah, yes, indeed. Xv should be fine though.

Actually, I'm holding off applying all the VX855 patches until someone
more knowledgeable than me look at the PLL genaration changes.

However, VX855 support is already in Fedora, so I'll apply this patch
there soon. Afaik, the only missing bit for the XO-1.5 is a panel patch
Chris talked to me about. Maybe you can remind him, or even send me the
patch directly.
