EDID block does NOT conform to EDID 1.3!
        Missing monitor ranges

The problem is the incorrect screen dimension, in this case it show "30 mm x 179mm".

I've edited the binary file and create new one with correct screen dimension and correct bit colours that in the original is not set (6 bits per primary color channel).

To load the new "edid.bin" I've created a specific xorg configuration file that loads the modified EDID configuration for DFP-2 screen, that is the MacBook Air LCD panel.
See attached file for more information.
