It seems like there is a HW issue which prevents them from reading EDID
from an offset. So, I'm not sure if it is a hack or a HW limitation.

One way around this would be to hide the HW requirement in the
get_edid_block func pointer passed to drm_do_get_edid(). This
would, however, result in more i2c reads (equal to # of extension
blocks) than what the patch currently does.

Peter, if you think doing extra EDID reads isn't too costly on your
platform, you could consider using drm_do_get_edid(). If not, I guess
you'll miss out on the additional functionality Jani is going to add
in the future.

Thanks,
Archit
