AFAICT, yes, this last one.  For asymmetric cloning, a misfeature 
exceeded in stupidity only by panning.  Because you have a panel with a 
bizarre size and then an external that's sane, and you try to clone, and 
even though the bizarre size would fit it's not available on both mode 

And at _that_ point, this isn't an EDID parser issue at all, it's driver
