When loading radeon module with modeset=1
the dmesg gets flooded with:
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 255
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* Raw EDID:

the drmradeonfb also sets a lower resolution than normal (1024x768)

I should add that i'm trying drm-radeon-testing from git repository
and i have also tried compiling latest 2.6.34 git from kernel.org.
Just to make it clear what's going on here: the CEA extension block really does have a broken checksum, although it looks correct otherwise.
so i guess it's not a bug then, but isn't there any way to circumvent the problem, other that flashing a new edid or buying a new tv?
(b.t.w i managed to get correct screen resolution in X by using CustomEDID option in xorg.conf with an edid bin i grabbed using 22.214.171.124 kernel, but only if i load X before module, but then i still get no HDMI audio because xf86-video-ati doesn't get the modesetting)
What i thought was strange was that it doesn't react this way on stock 126.96.36.199 kernel. On that kernel HDMI works beautifully with audio.
i am pretty sure i compiled the kernel correctly.
So i think it may be a regression (or rather progression since my EDID seems to really be broken) that causes trouble for me with the drm driver.
Should we add a quirk for this particular monitor or add some logic to use edids with faulty checksums? It would probably be better to attempt to use an edid than to not, at least for digital monitors.
sorry i meant to say 188.8.131.52 that's the stock kernel in slackware64-current
Invalid checksums on CEA extension is a problem I have found on a couple of A/V receivers + TV combinations. The A/V receivers usually try to update the audio infos and CEC physical address in the CEA extension, but sometimes fails to recalculate the checksum of the block.
I would suggest to lower the error to a simple warning and try to use the infos in the extension block anyway.

edid from "/sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI Type A-1/"
This is the edid it sees when booting with Linux kernel 184.108.40.206.
Yes that works for me. Now gets the correct output HDMI-0 not VGA, i don't have any 3d anymore though that's a different story...

dmesg after fix patch
Just wanted u to know that dmesg still get's a lot of these error messages
Thank you! the fix works perfect AFAI can see. I had to apply it manually in the drm-radeon-testing tree since something breaks 3D and XV for me in the d-r-n branch.
but now HDMI picture,audio and 3d is working perfectly for me, using d-r-t branch
with patch applied.

You need this patch if you are using the drm-next branch:
