It's possible that the vesa driver ignores the invalid checksum and tries to use the EDID anyway. A future driver release is going to have an option to ignore invalid EDID checksums. It's possible for certain invalid EDIDs with certain monitors to cause the driver to display using a mode that could damage them, which is why the checksum check is currently so strict.
