If r128 cards use a gpio pad for VGA, doesn't that mean they do implement ddc?

I looket at which register is used by radeon. It appears to be
RADEON_GPIO_VGA_DDC at offset 0x0060. And this is in a part of the code that
specifically refers to r128:

Register 0x0060 is not in r128_reg.h, but if I add it by hand, I see the same
behaviour that I saw when it was using 0x0068: X crashes as soon as the driver
tries to read or write it. When you wrote the r128-support branch, do you
remember if the card you tested was VGA or DVI? Also, if it makes a difference,
VGA is the secondary port on my card.
