I have tested the patch and haven't hfound any problms with my
displays, so I commeitted it to CVS.
I also adapted the patch to the IOWarrior driver which is a sibling of
the hd44780 driver and can drive the same displays.

Please consider sending in patches for the documetnation also.

Thank you for your contributin to lcdproc
