The EDID is not interpreted correctly in kernel space. For example:
sometimes there exists the standard timing in EDID. But unfortunately
the function of drm_mode_std does nothing but to get the aspect
If we want to add the modeline for the standard timing in EDID, we will
have to add the CVT/GTF algorithm in kernel space and then they are
called to generate the required modeline.
