From what I've seen on my Asus 1201HA, the mode the framebuffer code gets is
the biggest common mode of both displays. Since we get garbage outside the
scan-out buffer on the LVDS output I assume that the common mode doesn't find
it's way to LVDS mode setting (or maybe it just ignores it).

Also, do we know if the LVDS panel fitter code actually works? I don't have
access to my hardware at the moment but it would be interesting to see what
happens if you set a non-native resolution for LVDS at boot that overrides the
native one (without having anything connected to SDVO). Maybe you have tried
this already?

One thing I recall reading somewhere is that the panel fitter needs to be
restored upon re-enabling the pipe, and that the PFIT_CONTROL register must
be written to while the pipe is off. Doing DPMS off and then DPMS on might
disable the panel fitter.
