According to Google
most popular screen resolution since 2010 is 1366x786 despite 1366 is not dividable to 8. And my laptop has it http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-seri...

Please, if it is possible, someone who can, to add this resolution to vgasrc/bochsvga.c.
It is not sufficient to just add that resolution to seabios list.
I mean, it is not only bios which should have support for it.
For example, qemu/kvm will not work with it.
The problem here is that 1366 is not dividable by 8. In other words,
each line on the screen does not end at a byte boundary in memory.
This is a very weird resolution. Most devices which actually implement
it use 1368x768 and just crop two vertical one-pixe-wide lines on both
According to this page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution,
resolution 1366x768 is used by 26% from Web users,
based on stats from http://gs.statcounter.com/#resolution-ww-monthly-201401-201404-bar
This does not look real. Being a very weird resolution, with very
few devices available in stores all around, it can't be real.
But even if it _is_ real, it does not make this resolution any
/mjt, who added it once to seabios (not a rocket science to add 3 lines
to vgasrc.c) just to discover that qemu crashes once (windows)
guest tries to switch to it

(I didn't say the _resolution_ isn't real - I know it is real and I know it is in use. I was questioning the reality of the popularity part).
But note again: despite its popularity, it isn't sufficient to add it to seabios, other parts of the picture should support it too, and we have a widely used piece of software (qemu) which does not support it currently and is known to crash if someone tries to use this resolution. _That_ should be fixed first, and it is not a task of adding 3 simple lines to resolutions table, it is a bit more than that.
