After upgrading to standard archlinux packages nvidia-440.82 and kernel 5.6.14 my dual monitor setup is not working. The two screens are swapped, the primary monitor (HDMI-0) will be on right side and the secondary monitor (HDMI-1) will be on left side.

Video card is an NVIDIA GTX 1070.
This config is working properly with other linux installation on this PC.
Linux Mint (nvidia-435.21, kernel-5.3.0-51)
Manjaro Linux (nvidia-430.64, kernel-5.5.19)

With the help of nvidia dekstop application (called "Nvidia X server setting") I can restore the expected state temporarily, but after the next reboot it will be broken again.

nvidia generated attached.
This task depends upon
