Default Re: Toshiba resolution EDID fix

One of the interesting variation Toshiba produced no doubt. I have two 5105-s607, same BIOS levels, same video BIOS, same GeForce 440 Go, same FC6 software and software levels, same Nvidia driver. Yet the two are subtly different in their video handling.

Unfortunately, both also cause any driver in the 9xxx series to cause a kernel Oops as soon as X is started (no errors in the Xorg log).

Out of curiosity what does your '/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0' file show:

$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce4 440 Go
IRQ: 5
Video BIOS: 04.17.00.26.a6
Card Type: AGP
DMA Size: 32 bits
DMA Mask: 0xffffffff
