Of course. Basically the new DT properties are:

* optional regulators (vpnl & vddi)
* boolean "has-dsi-backlight"
* resolution-x/y
* offset-x/y

So probably not that much of a problem even if other API is
invented. I just noticed, that I forgot to actually add documentation
in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/panel/panel-dsi-cm.txt

I will fix that in the next patchset revision.

I could not find "generic" panel binding documentation. Can you
give me a pointer? I can just stick to the same property names
to avoid potential future problems.
