[Mesa-dev] drm_kms_helper refuses to load because of drm.edid_strict option

  Having applied the patch by Alex Deucher to make graphics mode
initialization work I do now have a problem in loading the
drm_kms_helper as required by the radeon module (also required: ttm

drm: Unknown parameter: `edid_strict`
It needs to be set to 0 to make graphics mode initialization work

* Why is the kernel command line parameter drm.edid_strict passed to
the drm_kms_helper module and why can I not prevent modprobe from
applying this parameter?
* How can I change drm_kms_helper to accept/ignore the drm.edid_strict option?

Thanks for your Support,
