After a surprisingly smooth update Xorg-7.5 update (good job there)
it's time for me to complain about a change in the intel driver.

The driver suddenly seems to be hard-coded to come up with 96dpi.
This is quite ridiculous as the driver perfectly knows the correct
display size:
	LVDS connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 304mm x 190mm
1440px / 304mm * 25.4(mm/") ~= 120dpi


A: Because it fouls the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
