What is this for? (Is this for setting the screen resolutions?)
Pretty sure that has to do with video acceleration on the new Pi 4B, and likely other unique Pi4 features like 4K and dual HDMI.

Instead, we’re using the Mesa “V3D” driver developed by Eric Anholt at Broadcom over the last five years. This offers many benefits, including OpenGL-accelerated web browsing and desktop composition, and the ability to run 3D applications in a window under X. It also eliminates roughly half of the lines of closed-source code in the platform.
