This seems to work fine with inteldrm, a 1280x800 display and
video device /dev/video:
frame sizes (width x height, in pixels) and rates (in frames per second):
controls: brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, gamma, sharpness

No idea either... if you wanted to reduce the risk of breakage, I guess
you could limit the resolution only if -O is not passed.
