Unfortunately, this won't really work. You could very well have two
panels and switch from one to another by changing the pin muxing, so
we have to use an enpoint for that.

This is pretty much the same case that we have with the A10s where we
need to have two output endpoints for the TV Encoder and HDMI,
something we cannot support right now in our binding, since we assume
that we have the two channels that only have one user, which turned
out to be wrong.

I guess an easy way would be to have an extra property defining which
channel the endpoint is attached to.
