Anything that is neither a standard format (4:3, 16:10 or 16:9) nor provides
valid EDID is just plain broken. I'd return it. If it's too late for free
return, maybe the vendor would allow exchange. If not, then try warranty
repair. Maybe a Lilliput support manager can authorize an attempt to get it
to output valid EDID either with a firmware update or otherwise.

Again, what about VESA or FBDEV drivers? No help?
