I liked the idea so much that I gave it a try. The patch looks much
better now, but has the same functionality as before. As the only
disadvantage, the patch no longer contains the template to produce a
particular EDID. But this code may be made available elsewhere - no need
to have it in the kernel.
Hope you like it.
