I have tried to have something similar to "mirror mode" by using x11vnc.

I wanted to start two X, one on the external monitor and one on the
LCD, then start a vncviewer in fullscreen in one of them and an x11vnc
in the other X server, but I'm not able to make it works (I have try
a similar config on another x86 computer with TVout and a VGA monitor
and it works).

First, when I start two X servers on the LCD, the second one is
unusable due to a lot of garbage on the screen. I don't know if this is
a known bug. Does anybody with an NVidia chip is able to have two X
servers running simultaneously?

If I start two X servers on the external monitor it works fine (but of
course I only have some garbage on the LCD).

Is there a way to not disable the external VGA monitor when switching to
console or on an "LCD" X server?

I'm using unstable Xfree86, is there a chance to have something better
with X.org?
