Basically, the problem is that the framebuffer device doesn't accept the
mode unchanged - the very same mode it reports as currently being
programmed. This could be related to the patch pointed out, but I'd
argue that even if the framebuffer device doesn't know or care about the
pixel clock, it could just leave the requested one unchanged. So I'd
consider this a bug in stifb.
