In the bad case, the 1600x1200 mode is getting picked. The mode comes
from the EDID in your monitor:
(II) RADEON(0): clock: 260.0 MHz Image Size: 54 x 3688 mm
(II) RADEON(0): h_active: 1600 h_sync: 1664 h_sync_end 1856
h_blank_end 2160 h_border: 17
(II) RADEON(0): v_active: 1200 v_sync: 1201 v_sync_end 1204
v_blanking: 1250 v_border: 0
The physical size is obviously wrong. Does your monitor support
1600x1200? We'd have to add a quirk for your monitor if the 1600x1200
mode is indeed bogus.
