EDID firmware resides in the monitor itself. You should never have to worry
about it, unless something is shot on your monitor. X-Org will probe it for
some basic information about your panel, to use in its configuration.

I did have to access it once, when I suspected my brand new monitor was
dead. I had to dig out the full results of what was in the EDID to figure
out what was wrong, and that it was a problem within the monitor. This was
with a band new Samsung funnily enough. However I called up Samsung with
this information, and within a half hour of being on the phone with them(One
transfer as the person I got in touch with the first time was obviously
entry level tech support and they realised very quickly I knew more than
they did about it so they transferred me up to the higher ups), they were
shipping out a new monitor to me to a local UPS store since I wasn't home
most of the day, where I did my exchange there. Couldn't be happier with
their service in that regards.

But most people(99.999%) will probably never have to worry about it.

I discovered that quickly enough. It's now at its maximum resolution, I
must say it's pretty nice, especially for movies. Ardour looked great on
it too, but I notice some "shimmering" on some other things. I'm still
playing with the contrast and some other controls to find the best settings.

Btw, how is the EDID accessed by the driver ? I mean, is it supposed to
reside in a certain place, do I have to load it, or whatever ? Is it
important to me ?

Best,
