I'm quite late, but It appears that the new code now of course has a
get_modes xf86OutputFuncsRec, which appears to be called even if
GeodeGetDDC has returned FALSE. The call in lx_output_get_modes always
calls xf86OutputGetEDID if the output isn't a panel, but it crashes if the
GPIO pins are in serial mode instead of DDC.
So maybe Jordan has some comments here - maybe RANDR1.2 in server
shouldn't be calling get_modes if there is no DDC and it either still does
or we aren't signaling that fact back?

Also, this is yet another thing that a volunteer could do ;)
I fear I won't have time in the short-term future for this, and the common
case for me is to have the GPIOs in DDC mode.
