What kind of restrictions do we have here? Really to a fixed list of
standard modes?

Some testing (kaby lake) indicates y axis has no restrictions and x axis
gets rounded up to the next multiple of 8 pixels (32 bytes), maybe to
align scanlines with cachelines?

Oh, and btw: Seems the resolution restriction (to 1024x768 for the
smallest vgpu type) seems to not be enforced. Intentional?

cheers,
Gerd
