    Strictly speaking we need to fire an event to userspace if the mode
    changes, and this is probably not straightforward to do underneath
    modeset locks, would probably need a worker.

    Clever userspace like GNOME will try to use the active mode, so it will
    handle this that way. If someone has set up the pipeline first that is.
    drm_client/fbdev and plymouth can do that because they honour userdef modes.

    Other userspace that don't know the userdef flag will fallback to the
    first mode which is NTSC which is also the default tvmode, so maybe this
    is good enough. PAL users will have to specify the mode, or teach their
    program about the userdef flag.

    But ofc relying on the userdef flag depends on the fact that there's a
    mode on the kernel command line, but maybe there's no way to avoid that
    since much/most? userspace treat "unknown" connector status as
    disconnected so many will have to force the connector to "connected"
    anyway. At least I don't know any way to permanetly force the connector
    status other than using video=.
