If any of you are bugged by kms choosing the wrong external display resolution all the time, try this. Personally, I was having the issue all the way since 2.6.33 and ever since patching drm parts of the kernel to the master branch in the hope for cure.

I stumbled over this bugzilla entry today:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27622

Chris Wilson's patch (works with vanilla 2.6.38, was the only one I needed) can be obtained from here:
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/ickle/drm-intel.git;a=commitdiff;h=01fe9dbde19a1a27b8ee63e2d964562962e1eb78

Don't forget to report success/failure to the bug, we really should have this entering linus' tree soon! :D

Simple revert to make things work even with latest 3.0.0_rc2.
