for both the package. Thanks.

Isn't 915resolution only for really old Intel drivers? Shouldn't we bump
the intel driver version instead?

AFAIK 915resolutions is a user space utility which overwrite BIOS
resolutions table in order to activate/use non standard resolutions like
800x480 in X (i.e.: in eeepc). Instead v86d is a user space helper for
uvesafb (a kernel patch) which is useful for use frame buffer at non
standard resolutions like 800x480 (i.e.: in eeepc).
