We've started adding a list of 'quirks' to the EDID parsing stuff;
perhaps we need a similar list of quirks for the BIOS data.

It looks like you're just whacking the hsync values; can you describe a
bit more verbosely what happens when you use the BIOS mode? Obviously,
if we can fix up the driver so that the BIOS mode works, that would be
nicer than discovering that the BIOS data is actually broken.

Can the BIOS set the mode correctly?
