Yes, it is true that currently you need to write these for every LCD. I
have been thinking this issue, and I think we can make a common driver.

However, it's not just selecting timings, as LCDs can have also other
characteristics than just the video timings. For example, some may have
power on/off line, some reset enable/disable, some need 50ms after
reset, some 80ms after reset etc.

But if we manage to get a sane set of those settings into the table, we
could perhaps cover most of the "dummy" LCDs with it.

This change doesn't probably need any changes to the DSS core, only for
the panel driver. Any takers for this task? =)

Tomi
