You can try messing with dss kernel commandlines but I dunno you get
anywhere good.

Fracture in video status reflects fracture in TI approach to how the
work is done.

There's an upstream effort to get definitive mainline support in, and
separately there's customer support based approach from TI that is
mainly targeted at Android / Omapzoom.

The code quality is best in mainline but support is incomplete,
especially about multihead.  In OZ and OZ-ish kernels, filter for what
goes in is not as aggressive as mainline, enablement is better but basis
is always an old release.  That means, the old, working 3.0 code
diverges from what got into mainline for later releases and can't be
brought on easily unless treated as alien code like SGX.

Linaro TI LT kernel is trying to be a third approach, while worshipping
mainline HEAD above all, so we have recent development basis, we glue on
whatever missing pieces we can scavenge from wherever, keeping them up
to date with Linus HEAD with to goal of being a highly enabled "fake
upstream" with the missing pieces integrated.

In your case that boils down to: Jassi added code to come out on HDMI
connector at 1080p via EDID on our kernel, AOSP omap 3.0-based kernel
doesn't have that support.
