Description of problem:
If you attach two monitors, one with a valid EDID and one with an invalid EDID, the monitor with the invalid EDID is completely ignored.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever is on testday-20090909-x86_64.iso
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach two displays, with with good EDID, one with bad EDID
Only the display with the valid EDID is detected.
Both displays are detected.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R200 QH [Radeon 8500] [1002:5148] (rev 80)
OK, when retesting to collect logs, I accidentally swapped the inputs that the monitors were attached to and the behavior is in fact as follows:
1. Text mode is displayed on the monitor with the valid EDID (regardless of which output it is attached to).
2. X starts on the display attached to VGA output (regardless of which display it is).
3. Everything (mostly) works as it should without KMS (text on both, mirrored X displays by default, spanning works when you configure it).
