Can you post your xorg log and dmesg output?  There are several possibilities:
1. Your panel does not provide an EDID.  The driver is still able to
determine the native mode timings from tables in the vbios.
2. Your EDID has a bad checksum/etc. and the kernel drm EDID validator
rejects it:
You can try the patch on that bug and see if it helps.

That bug just looks like a random collection of things vaguely to EDIDs.
