  Screen won't fit the monitor resolution on my laptop

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After upgrading the linux kernel, the next boot X started with wrong
  resolution, after looking around I think it could be related to the
  auto i915.modeset=0 in the kernel args, but  I don't know how to get
  this fixed. Moreover the xorg fallsback to vesa on init (I am not sure
  this is the proper way to express that).
