This would also fix the comments made by Jani and Thomas, so I quite
like the idea of it.

I'm struggling a bit to find how would could implement this though.

From what you were saying, I guess the prototype would be something like

struct drm_display_mode *drm_create_analog_mode(unsigned int pixel_clock,
unsigned int lines,
unsigned int frame_rate)

But I have zero idea on what the implementation would be. Do you have
some resources for this you could point me to?

Thanks
Maxime
