Description Z. Liu 2021-12-18 08:27:40 UTC
after updated kernel to 5.10, monitor become black w/ error message said:
"The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display. Please change your input timing to 1920x1080@60Hz ...", so I did a git bisect, and the result is:

# first bad commit: [11be60bd66d5431018d706ec623c8ece80a7f931] matroxfb: add Matrox MGA-G200eW board support

Display become normal after apply following patch:

I don't really know the meaning of the value I changed, just use this value from 
 vbG200 for a test.
