I have the same (or similar) KVM (not in the office at the moment) and I
can confirm that with newer kernels EDID fecthing in flaky. It's 50/50
if EDED retrieval succeeds or if it fails with:

Apr 26 13:06:57 dtor-d630 kernel: [13464.936336] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 26 13:06:57 dtor-d630 kernel: [13464.955317] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 26 13:06:57 dtor-d630 kernel: [13464.973879] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.087659] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.107147] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.126908] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.146277] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.297659] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208
Apr 27 09:13:03 dtor-d630 kernel: [44602.317063] [drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 208

Earlier kernels were able to retrieve EDEDs reliably.

This is with:

[ 1.678392] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Detected an NV50 generation card (0x086b00a2)
Thanks.
