Hi, Bernie,
	In our geode driver 2.11.9, the shadow buffer have been
allocated through use the exeOffscreenAlloc, because it have had changed
in >>Xserver 1.7, but it have some inverted rotation issues need to

	As you said rotation seemed to work well in your platform, what
is the display resolution and graphic memory in BIOS?
