I checked with a single link DVI-D cable, and see the same behaviour
as with a dual link cable. This would have had to be driven out of
spec to achieve the resolution and refresh rate of my panel. That
said, the spec is old and the shielding on the dual-link cable
supplied with the panel is way over-specced.

If Intel GPUs (such as my Haswell board here) don't support dual-link
DVI, then this patch will prevent using panels >1920x1200 unless they
advertise low-refresh rate modes. It looks like the panel
manufacturers assume dual-link will be available.

The lesser of the evils may be to allow reasonable out-of-spec
dotclocks, unless I'm missing something?
