    You know, I disabled Nvidia's DDC stuff and enabled firmware EDID
    again and it started working fine, even without
    video=nvidiafb:1600x1200MR on the command line that I had for a long

    So it works fine now. Would you oppode adding dmi check for inspiron
    8100 to automatically disable nvidia i2c support at runtime?
