Dear Alan,

you've been quoted as a contributor to the X11R6.8.1 driver patch for the 
AMD / Nat Semicondictor graphics chip 5536 (LX). 

As I understand it, we have moved to version 7.1 meanwhile, which is highly 

Can you please tell me if the patch or the support of this specific chip has 
made it into the modular architecture? Or will I need to go back to the 6.8.1 

And a little secondary question to it: Do you know if there is a debian 
package for this driver - if it exists in its modular form...?

Thanks ahead!
