O.k. I have done that but things are not working at all now. Here is the
end of the xorg log:

(EE) intel(0): Couldn't allocate shadow memory for rotated CRTC

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

BTW where are the new options documented? I checked the intel driver man 
and the xorg.conf man page from my build and I'm not seeing these 
monitor options.
