I found it at:

Yeah, I also ran across a couple other pages with TLA->Company mappings
(one from a milspec) but only some of the names mapped correctly.  The
above link is from an EDID spec document, so it seems the most
authoritative source I could find.

I notice display-name.c has the labels separated by source, which I
think is a very good idea - it may help in the future if we notice
incorrect entries to be able to go back and re-review.  I'd like to
suggest including the source for each set of entries, for future

Btw, I also looked through the MonitorDB, which does not have the
monitor TLA mappings, but is a useful list of monitor manufacturers.
With the combined info we have now, I think we've covered the vast bulk
of these, but there's still a handful of manufacturers we're missing
(BenQ as an example).  I guess we can keep an eye out for them in bug
