Yes, cut that raw EDID and extension and paste it into a hex editor
to get a raw edid file which you would put in /etc/X11/edid.bin.

If you need a hand with this I can do it for you and email it to you.

and put this in the screen section of your xorg.conf file
Option         "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/etc/X11/edid.bin"

You may have to change DFP-0 to whatever the screen is.
