I also use CGMiner. What kernel was this? Phatk? It was my impression that if you have to use 2.6 on a 58xx card, diablo was better than phatk.
The fact that it doesn't give amazing results on a 58xx cards doesn't surprise me, and it's kinda why I havn't upgraded myself. Anyone with a 7xxx card tried it out?
