I'm wondering if there's some way to detect this from Linux? I guess it
would be nice to be able to at least detect a broken config to warn /
prevent an user that their situation is not going to be reliable / work
really well (like if they have a 4k display without hdmi_enable_4kp60
set, or the issue we're discussing here)
