I think you could use VDIWidth * VDIPlanes / 8 to calculate the current
line length in bytes. But that of course only works in VDI mode - that's
basically also why I suggested the TP_VDIRES below.

You could also write the values to the ROM region after the generic
patching - with STMemory_WriteWord().

Is that easier? We'd need to calc the CRC in that case, so I guess it's
rather easier if we skip the CRC check in TOS?
