can you elaborate on the rationale for this commit? The gist of it is

- "/sys/bus/pci/devices/%04x:%02x:%02x.%d/graphics:fb%d",
+ "/sys/bus/pci/devices/%04x:%02x:%02x.%d/graphics/fb%d",

which looks backwards from here, as on a 2.6.27 kernel I only have:

daenzer at thor|17:59:51> find /sys -name \*fb0

What kernel version(s) were you seeing the other path on?

Note that unfortunately this commit was even cherry-picked onto
server-1.5-branch and is still in the xserver 1.6 release candidates.

Thanks for any insights, and Happy New Year!
