    Theoretically, not correct. VBE 3.0 allows arbitrary mode setting - not
    only vertical refresh, but all mode parameters (the ones appearing in X
    modelines). This is supported by both svgalib and uvesafb. I don't know
    on how many VBE3 cards this feature really works, but it does work for
    some cards.
