Yup. But then let's add :
Installation time detection and support for the BIOS resolutions
overriding (since IIRC it's a configuration directive in xorg.conf).
No, with the magic all-singing, all-dancing modesetting intel driver,
you don't have to do configuration directives. The driver looks at the
EDID information for your connected displays and beats the BIOS into
actually allowing the resolution.
I'll try to pull a copy of the current code and update my snapshot
package today while waiting on trees so that people can test it now ;-)
