We testing with 300 retries, but the second monitor still did not show
up. However, it did show up in lspci.

The bug is at: http://pad.lv/1543683 . All the hardware details should
be in the bug report. The cable is a single link dvi-d cable.
Unfortunately the bug reporter does not have a dual link cable to test.
If you need any additional info, we can ask the bug reporter.

I'm not sure if this is the exact issue or not. I'll review the other
thread and compare.
