So if I understood you correct here what I really need is just to get rid of existing check,
right? I.e. the following is to be in v2 respin:

You mean explains what? That .mode_fixup is not meant to be used in
new code?

I don't think you can remove the check entirely as this will make
any mode be accepted, right?

Correct. Otherwise we'll get some modes and devices that
don't work.

Remember our saga with 74.25 vs 74.40 MHz?

With our PLLs on AXS and HSDK boards we may generate 74.25 MHz clock
which satisfy some monitors especially those who pass correct EDID to the host.
But what if EDID is either corrupted or doesn't exist (that's my case with
some industrial monitor as well as with old DVI monitor)?

In that case Linux kernel attempts to calculate all the values including pixel clock
but then instead of 74.25 we'll get 74.40 and equipment that used to work is no longer useful.

So strictly speaking existing check makes perfect sense. But it reduces
compatibility with not very good monitors.

Probably better solution to the problem is just to throw away [my] faulty HW and
buy equipment that conforms to standards (not really sure if EDID is a hard
requirement for DVI/HDMI displays or this is just an option).

BTW I'm wondering if there're any guidelines on what could be pixel clock
deviation from the requested one?

Yes there's still the issue of atomic_check/mode_fixup vs. mode_valid. I'm
still trying to volunteer someone to fix up that mess. But at least it's
all properly documented I hope (if not, pls send patch).

Hmm, per DVI and HDMI spec all compliant equipment must support
the EDID. So, either you don't have a compliant equipment or the
EDID is faulty (maybe wrong checksum), if you activate full debug
in drm core you can see the list of probed modes from EDID.

Anyway, per spec they must support EDID, otherwise you won't know
what modes the display support. I think its not very portable to
force a mode because it may not work in some displays. Or, if you
want to make sure it is always works choose 640x480@60 because (I
think) both DVI and HDMI displays must support this mode (though
this would need to change at boot [or at runtime, once AXS PLL
driver is in] the clock frequency from 74 to 25Mhz).

The "flavours" of pixel clock are already handled by drm core (in
cea_mode_alternate_clock()) and I think the mode that is passed
to the drivers has always the corrected value (i.e. the value may
vary when you have 60Hz or 59.94Hz, for example, but only the
60Hz value will be passed to the driver).
