If we have this here, then we should also have hpd-gpios defined here as
where we describe a connection we should also describe no connection.
Now, hpd-gpios is a bit of a mess being defined in both connector nodes
and bridge (HDMI/DP) nodes. I think that is just history pre-dating
connector nodes. Connector nodes are now the preferred place. Connector
nodes and panel nodes are essentially the same thing (the endpoint of
That being said, this patch is fine as is.
