I've been working on eDP support for sc8180x recently, which afaict is
identical to sc7280 in this regard. I finally got the patches cleaned up
and posted here:
My initial patches added widebus support, rather than disabling it. But
those patches needs a little bit more polishing - and I finally figured
was able to disable the feature. So I will get back to this.
There's currently a few seconds delay on plug detection, so this needs
to be investigated further and I haven't looked at backlight handling
