It does two passes -- one to 'detect' the present monitors and discover
what modes they support, and a second pass to actually configure them.
Between these two passes, the hardware is restored to startup
configuration. This is not optimal; we should be able to get rid of the
extra reset phase during startup, but it's a bit complicated.
