Theoretically this should work fine, but there may be more savings to
be had in the underlying EDID fetching code & timing. I know our
timings aren't as good as X yet, but we may be able to do something
similar in the actual DDC probing as well (use fast timings first, then
fall back to robust ones if that fails) and get a double benefit. Have
you looked at that at all?
Either way, this one looks ok, so I'm ok with it as long as Dave is.
