Ah, ok. That really sounds like the X-Server would be the right place
to setup that. The X-Server doing one part of the setup, the driver
another part and the user must care about doing that in the right order
is a bit hackish.
Given that x.org is more open than xfree86 it should be easier to get
bt859 support into the X-Server these days, I'd suggest to try to go
that route ...

nvtv does the same, but from userspace (using /dev/i2c maybe)?
#define printk(args...) fprintf(stderr, ## args)
