The subject should probably have "drm/i915/bios" or "drm/i915/vbt".

Personally I think it was a mistake originally to make guesses about the
outputs in absence of VBT on DDI platforms, because we can never get the
generic guesses right across all ports and all products. And for the
record, that was the result of an easy choice to enable developers way
back when, and forgotten.
Certainly eDP is more likely than something else on port A. But this
will break any outlier products without VBT that have a non-eDP output
on port A. I guess it's a risk we have to take, and handle the fallout
