I'm using the dev/videomode stuff, which I presume is what you mean
(dev/ic/videomode.h looks like an older version). I'm currently just
using the static list of modes in videomode.c to pick a mode from at boot.
I'm not sure what the best practice is in this area, but that seemed like
a good start.
