The problem is that for my graphics code to continue to support all firmware versions for "all eink kindles" in both main and diags modes, I will have to compensate for this "math glitch", and then again in another way if and when they get around to fixing it in future firmware. Hopefully they will not do the "two incompatible ioctl structures with the same name" problem again like they did with 5.0.x and 5.1.x. Yuck...
