Dear Rene, Dear Alan,

I managed to get the patched driver running, including rotation. 

base code: xf86-video-nsc-X11R7.1-2.8.1
right from the freedesktop site, for 7.1

patch: nsc-amd-geode-lx-R6.patch

I compiled it as Rene wrote below. Then I copied the driver over to the 
device, which is a IBC 520 

00:01.1 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Geode LX Video 
(prog-if 00 [VGA])
        Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Geode LX Video
        Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- 
Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
        Status: Cap- 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- 
<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 32 bytes
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 10
        Region 0: Memory at ee000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
        Region 1: Memory at ef000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Region 2: Memory at ef004000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Region 3: Memory at ef008000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Region 4: Memory at ef00c000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]

I can hereby confirm that the patch compiles and runs fine on the given 

Thanks voluminously for your help. If you need some more information or 
specific files for statistic / debugging purposes, just send me an email!
