  sorry for the delay -- yes, that solves my issue, i can now see the
entire screen in firstboot.  and i ran thru firstboot in its entirety
since this is just a test system and there's nothing worth saving.
so, from the perspective of just being able to see the entire screen,
it looks good.

  OTOH, xdpyinfo still thinks i have a 2080x800 display but we already
know that's a different issue.
