As current virtual display for Intel vGPU is still emulating against real HW
pipeline with same limitations, asked display developers that whether or not
specific mode can work might still depend on current or future HW behavior.
So could we add some hints on what kind of edid mode vfio device can operate?
Some may support arbitrary modes, but some may only support standard modes.
