Upstream's reply was basically "There's no way to tell programatically
whether LVDS is present, so there's nothing we can do".
Would it be possible in d-i to ask the user for that information when
it detects this mainboard? I know it is late for adding new strings,
but it would nice for this be fixed at least for wheezy+1.
In the meantime we should presumably point new users to LVDS-1:d in
the release notes.
