If your problem is only to get the display to the DVI connector,
then it should be doable with register dumps from macos and/or
some tracing of the macos driver.

I don't have such a machine so I can't try hacking the driver,
but maybe Ani has ideas about what registers to look for ?

Ani, if you tell me how to get at these, I can write a macos 9
tool to dump them.
