Awesome, the kernel DDC code is broken.  It looks like it was written
without even a cursory glance at the X code.  X will try to read 128
bytes at a time and will do the right thing for segment selection when
there's more than 256 bytes; the kernel code appears to try for the
whole 256 at once and is completely ignorant of segments.

I'll cook up a patch for that.

Thanks!   Getting EDID right has become sort of a crusade for me.
