I don't think this is an issue. The definitions initialize the fields in
the natural order, so the repetitions are where very localized and quite
difficult to actually get wrong. I've never seen anyone get it wrong for
any panel.

Also note that the above notation is only out of convenience to make it
clearer what the active, front-porch, sync and back-porch values are.
You can easily just collapse them into the sum if you're worried about
the repetition.

Alternatively, are you aware of struct display_timing? It's a different
way to describe the timings which doesn't require repeating the values.
simple-panel already supports those as an alternative to the struct
drm_display_mode.
