Please provide reference to handover protocol that allows passing
refresh rate information between bootloader and linux kernel.

This isn't the dev list. It's the user list.

video= does work, and AFAIK it's only a few years old, having been created only upon introduction of KMS (which means one who cares about "handover protocol" shouldn't need to go too far back in kernel mailing list archives to find discussion of its creation); so again, what is the point of having GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX or GRUB_GFXMODE?
