Vesa driver support custom resolution?

Can anyone tell me if the Vesa driver can be used to set up a custom mode
for a resolution not included in the supported mode table of a video card?
I know that VBE 3.0 defines an interface to set the CRTC values rather than
using a predefined mode, but I am not sure how many video cards actually
support this, or if the Vesa driver makes use of it.  Are there specific
video cards that support this option?
