The most recent patch tries calling xf86DoEDID_DDC2() for all types of cards
with the existing I2c logic. This no longer crashes but it still fails to
detect the VGA monitor. xf86DoEDID_DDC2() returns NULL no matter what so I'll
have to do some experimentation. I have three questions about snooping the vbe
ddc commands.

1. By this, do you mean vbeDoEDID()?

2. This detects the monitor perfectly on my card, so why can't the driver just
use this instead of implementing the I2c stuff? Is it because xf86DoEDID_DDC2()
is platform independent but vbeDoEDID() is x86 only?

3. To snoop what the vbios is doing, would this consist of dumping the contents
of suspicious registers before and after vbeDoEDID() to see what changed? Or
should I try to dump the contents *during* that function (i.e. patching the vbe
module or running radeonreg in a loop)?
