more sdvo mode setting, and crazy ideas.

My i9xx driver wasn't VT switching cleanly or exiting cleanly, so I spent the day tracing the BIOS, which was doing it correctly,

it let me to a bit in a register, that is something to do with border enabling but is actually magic.

Had the great idea that GPU manufacturers should allow their GPU shader processing to access the other registers on the GPU, then we could write shader programs to set mode :-)

Going to google's opening of building in Sydney this evening for a look..
