Note that with the Intel chips or at least with their Xorg driver, you
probably do *not* want to enable the Option "Clone" in xorg.conf.
Even though this will make the second head ("Pipe B") display a cloned
mirror of what's on the first head, Pipe B then will not be able to
use "Video overlay functions"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_overlay) according to the "i810"
manual page. 

Another note: I found several websites which state that enabling
Xinerama disables Direct Rendering (on i810). So you probably want to
disable Xinerama for Gem, too.
