You can use the command line 'xrandr' tool, it should do the job. It's
quite simple to use and you can script it up - it's just something like
'xrandr --output FOO --right-of output BAR'.

The only wrinkle is that nouveau doesn't yet handle dynamic framebuffer
resizing for side-by-side setups, so you'll need an xorg.conf with a
Screen section with Virtual lines for the resolution you need. We really
need to document this somewhere...

File a bug on it! Actually we added a rotation test case for the Radeon
test day since someone mentioned it's often an interesting failure, but
it was too late for the nouveau day.

I rather prefer lspci -nn, as it actually gives the PCI ID of the
hardware (which is what identifies it uniquely).
