I probably won't have time to implement this generic panel driver yet.
However, I will be merging some DSS driver model changes (sent to
mailing lists) soon, after which this patch needs to be changed a bit.

The changes can be found from
http://gitorious.org/linux-omap-dss2/linux/commits/work but they may
still change a bit.
