That wiki page shows how to pass a module parameter to change the video
mode. But it still doesn't look like it lets you define a custom mode.
The CVT magic may or may not be "close enough" for what he wants.
I suspect what Stephen really wants is 'fbset --timings'. The question
is whether nouveaufb supports this. I don't have a system with
nouveaufb running so I can't say. But from past experience, I've
learned that not all framebuffer drivers do.
