There are many resolutions in market but we can store small portion in EDID DTD.

I select several recent popular resolutions from wikipedia page;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_display_standard

(file #26045)

I have an issue with KVM when selecting display resolution
in guest OS. After short research, I found a post about
supporting EDID in April, 2009 by Brendan Trotter on boch-developers ML.
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=200904110900.31795.info%40vruppert.de&forum_name=bochs-developers

There is no real patch and it was not adopted.
I'm trying to reproduce code on current and made it work.

There are a series of patches.
0001: Brendan's suggestion
0002: format comments, add header line
0003: format comment(cont) wrap 128 chars.
0004: add high and wide resolution
0005: split low and high resolution bios
0006: set high resolution bios as default

You can also see it on github.com
that is one on top of cvs repos.

https://github.com/miurahr/vgabios/commits/master

There are some FAQ how support large resolution.
and it suggest a manual setup on xorg.conf in guest OS.

My work may make it obsolete because user can select resolutions
with OS's configuration utility in recent OS.
