I just compile my first kernel with cirrus console, but I have two problems
with it:

1.) My monitor is not able to center the display properly. I can't move
    the screen to the right. If I reduce the width to the minimum I'm able
    to read everything except the first column.

    I doubt that it is the monitor's fault. It is an Eizo F555i-M which was
    able to display all modes by VillageTronic's software and CyBERgraphics.
    Even a SPARCStation II worked without any problems.

    Maybe a console mode definition with a standard VGA mode would help.
    Could anyone supply me something like this?

2.) If I boot into single used mode the Cirrus console displays all the
    output but doesn't accept any input. Yes, I created "grf3" and "ttye3"
    and added "ttye3" to "/etc/ttys".
