I think OF uses the Radeon "GPIO" registers to probe the panel type based
on a wired panel ID and a table of EDIDs in the driver. At least, it did
it that way on mach64. I dumped a disassembly of the Rage M3 (r128 base)
MacOS 9 driver of my Pismo and started tracing it, it seem to play with
GPIOs as well. I didn't yet figure out the exact algorithm though.
