Default Dynamic EDID

The HP LP2480zx is able to switch the EDID info on the fly.

Problem:
After changing the colour space on the monitors OSD the EDID is switched by the monitor.
But applications can not see that. Only a restart of Xorg makes the new EDID available.
A call to oyranos-monitor-nvidia dos not fetch the new EDID. After erasing the EDID atoms
the nvidia driver still delivers the old outdated EDID info.

Expected behaviour:
new EDID becomes immediately visible without the need to restart Xorg. (btw. on osX dynamic EDID switching works fine.)
