Well i got it working, it didn't find my monitor on the CRT port. The
"monitor" is a VGA->LVDS converter. So i hacked it a bit that it thinks
the monitor is always there.
Also the LVDS panel seems to flicker, i didn't have this with the other
branches (like modesetting). Any ideas why this is different ?
