Hi Victor,

I committed a few small man pages fixes to the 1.4 branch and a video
quirk that was reported in Debian/Ubuntu to the video-quirks branch.
Attached are two more patches I currently ship in Debian and which
might be suitable upstream:
It uses flock to make the lock file handling more robust instead of
our home grown solution
Original Debian bug report:

It documents the ADD_PARAMETER/DROP_PARAMETER as mechanism how to pass
video-quirks to pm-utils (I assume this still the recommended way)
