drm_match_hdmi_mode() doesn't return the VIC for the AVI infoframe, but
the VIC for the HDMI vendor specific infoframe. See section 8.2.3 of the
HDMI 1.4 spec.

That's not the AVI infoframe, that's the HDMI vendor specific infoframe.

Are you seeing a bug? it's totally possible, I've never used an actual
conformance tool when I wrote that code, so it's likely buggy and the
VIC in the AVI infoframe may well be wrong.
