Still scratching my head :|

this is the patch (modulo cosmetic stuff) that I sent to Giuseppe. I
believe it's correct (I cross checked with driver):

diff --git a/drivers/video/nvidia/nv_i2c.c b/drivers/video/nvidia/nv_i2c.c
index b858897..7e64341 100644
--- a/drivers/video/nvidia/nv_i2c.c

- val = VGA_RD08(par->PCIO, 0x3d5);
return val;

Non sempre quello che viene dopo e` progresso.
