It would be interesting to know if there's a VBT on the machine at all
anywhere. It might be hiding in an ACPI reserved or non-volatile
region; /proc/iomem will show you where those are, and you can scrape
them out of /dev/mem with clever use of dd(1).
Or, Apple might have decided to do their own thing, in which case it's
all much harder.
The dual-channel LVDS thing you mention in the next message is a fair
point. We should be able to just look at the native panel mode timings
and _know_ whether it needs to be dual-channel. I think the break
frequency is 112MHz, I'm sure the docs have the real number.
