fwiw, my hope was that we could implement a panel-picker for lvds+ddc,
in a similar way to handling devices that could have multiple
different dsi panels, to make this a bit more automagically
plug-and-play.. srini has done some experiments with probing panel's
edid, so we just need to figure out if vendor+device-id in edid is
reliable enough to have a global table mapping them back to panel
compat strings or whether that table needs to go in dt..
