Sorry, we're tracking that on bug #19995, and while I posted a note
about some of my progress, I didn't remember to post a note saying that
the user-mode code is now working for several people. Kristian Høgsberg
is busy getting the kernel mode setting code working, at which point
we'll be "done". Please report your results on that bug, including an
Xorg.0.log file with 'option "ModeDebug" "true"' set in your config file
so I can see how the driver set up the DP output for your monitor.
