I'm not ultra familiar with the i810/i830 video driver code,
however the patch included in the above email seems like it might
fix things on i830 but possibly break i810.
Perhaps a better fix would be to read the values from an
i830RegRec, which would need to be filled in elsewhere first? I
see that declared in the headers but not really used much
anywhere. Perhaps the driver is incomplete.
I'd at least test this patch on various i810/i830 video hardware
prior to committing it. Also, the INREG(0x60000) should be
INREG(HTOTAL_A) to be a bit more readable.
Hope this helps.
