xf86-video-nv was updated few days ago to version 2.1.2, which supports
DualHead option (with some limitations). from nv(4) manpage:
Option "Dualhead" "boolean"
Enables simple VBE-based dual head mode. This sets the same
resolution on both outputs and lays them out side-by-side. The
screens will be panned together as one big metamode if the vir-
tual desktop is larger than both screens combined.
