This seems to work fine with inteldrm, a 1280x800 display and

video device /dev/video:
  encodings: yuy2
  frame sizes (width x height, in pixels) and rates (in frames per second):
        320x240: 30
        352x288: 30
        640x480: 30
        800x600: 15
        1024x768: 12
        1280x720: 7
        1280x800: 7
        1600x1200: 5
  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.
