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.
