Thanks for the patch.
This does a fair job of avoiding an explicit crash whenever DDC is
When that happens, restricting available modes to those that AMD
considers safe i.e. Panel-friendly modes, is indeed a promising
However, that strategy doesn't guarantee that the selected mode is
something that the connected VGA monitor can handle. It's a shot in the
dark and the mode we try, 1920x1440, is a large enough size (and an
uncommon enough resolution) that we cannot consider that shot in the
dark to be a safe one.
Thinking out loud, 800x600, 1024x768 or 1280x1024 would probably be
safer modes to attempt whenever DDC is unavailable, pretty much in that
