Hi everyone,

I just spend some more time on the nested driver and prepared 3 patches,
any comments are appreciated - I'm a newbie. The patches are numbered,
but don't depend on each other.

[PATCH xf86-video-nested 1/3] Avoid casts, use union members
* No commit message, just beautification

[PATCH xf86-video-nested 2/3] Fix segmentation fault when no modes
* A "should pull" if it isn't wrong. Well, it fixes the seg fault, so it
  can't be that wrong.

[PATCH xf86-video-nested 3/3] Resize client (XSetWMNormalHints()) on
mode switch
* That's the patch I'm realy not sure about, if it's correct:
1. Use the hook AdjustFrame instead of SwitchMode
   When specifying the modes in the Display SubSection in _descending_
   order (ie "800x600" before "640x480"), everything is fine and SwitchMode
   would be called on every mode switch. But, when specifying the modes
   in ascending order it won't. That's why I'm doing it from
2. Blank the image with memset? What's a more proper way?
