I am running current drm-core-next, and it doesn't fix it.

Although turning off audio fixes it, I wonder if the the fact that the only two
(out of four) interlaced modes that are affected by colour shift and distortion
are ones that should be double clocked, but the modes really do AFAICT use the
full res eg. These are the modes as displayed by xrandr -

 1440x576 (0x16f)   27.0MHz -HSync -VSync Interlace
        h: width  1440 start 1464 end 1590 total 1728 skew    0 clock   15.6KHz
        v: height  576 start  580 end  586 total  625           clock   25.0Hz
 1440x480 (0x170)   27.0MHz -HSync -VSync Interlace
        h: width  1440 start 1478 end 1602 total 1716 skew    0 clock   15.7KHz
        v: height  480 start  488 end  494 total  525           clock   30.0Hz

Looking at the CAE for the TV and the spec shows that they are 720 wide and
each pixel should be sent twice - I think I get normal 1440 wide.
