If you are having problem yes. If your setup is okay then you don't need 
to send me the info. 

> If it is, just tell me which information is useful and, in the case of functions that require arguments, how to get it, and I'll send mine.

Once I get LVDS working on the DRM side I expect problems. We can come the 
UMS xorg driver to the kernel driver if we end up with problems.
