I have to say they are both seemingly arbitrary and pointless.
What happens if I say my pineview LVDS panel needs it the other way
and I don't have a VBIOS either? who wins?
Really the kernel should just fail if the parameter isn't available
from the VBIOS, and maybe you could add some sort of command line or
even openfirmware type table to store this info.
Having the driver making crappy decision because someone thought not
shipping a bios with the hw details in it is hardly what I call
