1.228.1. RHBA-2010:0312: bug fix update

An updated xorg-x11-drv-vesa driver which fixes a bug is now available.
xorg-x11-drv-vesa is a video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System. It is used as a fallback driver for cards with no native driver, or when the native driver does not work.
On Dell Precision M09-family laptops using nVidia Quadro FX 770M video drivers, DPMS backlight power saving modes did not function correctly. The backlight would remain on when the laptop screen was closed, significantly reducing the standby life of the device. The update implements a change to the driver's DPMS settings, which corrects the backlight issue. (BZ#494671)
Users of the xorg-x11-drv-vesa package are advised to upgrade to the updated package, which resolves this issue.
