I don't think I've ever seen a display that would _require_ dual-link.
You should at least get some kind of picture with single-link.

No, we can't do that. If the display won't accept the out of spec
signal you get no picture. If the display will accept higher
frequencies it needs to tell us that by including the HDMI VSDB
in the EDID. There's no other way for us to know.

What we do now is allow the user to specify a mode manually that's out
of spec, but we won't include such modes in the list automatically. That
should guarantee that everyone gets some kind of picture on the screen
off the bat, while still allowing the user to force any mode he wishes.
