The precise timing values are read from the panel EDID data for flat
panels/LCDs. IIRC it's possible to make X reject the EDID timing by using
a wrong refresh setting (at least that's what happened to me in the past,
I had to lower the href range below the default setting), so the refresh
ranges seem to get used. Modes specified in the EDID data take precedence,

Another reason for X to reject modes is exceeding the panel dimensions.
