How to set video resolution permanently in Fedora 22?

I want my Fedora 22 box to run at a video resolution of 1680x1050.

I added and selected that resolution by doing:

$ xrandr --newmode "1680x1050_60.00"  146.25  1680 1784 1960 2240  1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
$ xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1680x1050_60.00
$ xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1680x1050_60.00

That worked, but when I reboot the resolution reverts to 1280x1024.

I tried creating file:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-monitor.conf

and putting in it:

Section "Monitor"
 Identifier "VGA-0"
 Option "PreferredMode" "1680x1050_60.00"
EndSection

but that had no effect (perhaps because the resolution was not found after the reboot).

How can I set the resolution to 1680x1050 permanently?

I am downloading (with rsync) the x86_64 os and updates, but noticed how little there is under the os directories, and that there is this 'everything' tree with all of the rpms for the os.

Can I rsync the everything packages and repodata directories on top of the os tree to make a complete setup, or do I have to have to keep the everything tree separate?

On the kernels from kernel.org, we have the file hid-ids.h in:

linux-4.0.5/drivers/hid/hid-ids.h

This kernel is however missing from my F22 installation (with the Fedora kernel).

Any pointer of the possible location.
