Note that the video mode set by libpayload's Geode driver does not
play well with most monitors.

I have only been able to get an image on two old, analog-only TFT:s.
Newer/cheaper TFT:s and projectors can't sync.

This is on an alix1c board.

It would be great if the mode was tweaked a little to either the
standard 640x350 mode 3, or some standard framebuffer mode 640x480,
800x600 or 1024x768.

I agree.
