It does that, but for a connection without a monitor, you end up doing
load detection anyway. In any case, the real problem is that the driver
does a full save/detect/restore phase during detection, and then another
save/modeset/run phase before bringing up the server. It was easier to
make it work correctly, but could obviously be dramatically simplified
if the driver instead did save/detect/modeset/run at startup.
