FWIW, for me EDID failure on new kernels is 100% reproducible, and there

OK, this time bisecting started off relatively smoothly (doing the same
"backwards" bisect on the branch-o-reverts as last time), but then my
disk died halfway through... So I'll post the partial bisection results

before I can get back to this issue.
