Matrox dual-head graphics card not working in edgy

A recent upgrade to edgy has killed my dual-head matrox card.  By that
I mean that it now only works with one monitor.

I believe this is because there isn't a mga_hal driver available for xorg 7.1.1.

the xorg log says:

(II) Module mga_hal: vendor="Matrox Graphics Inc. - x86_32 - Release v4.4.0"
        compiled for 7.0.0, module version = 1.0.0
        ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 0.8
(EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1)
(II) UnloadModule: "mga_hal"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

So I assume this means I need to hold on until matrox release an
updated driver?  I just thought I'd ask in case I'm missing something.
 Once you have two monitors going back to one feels so constricting.
