In general almost all hardware is limited to the above (+ analog audio over
the 2 Sideband use pins, but I expect that to have a separate mux).

You're right, theoretically there might be other cases, e.g. there is a spec
for HDMI over Type-C (wishful thinking from the HDMI group, no one uses this),
but:

1) I expect most muxes to implement the above set, that is what all
hardware out there supports (well that or less).

2) We can always add extra defines here, that means that a Type-C mux may
not implement all states and return -EINVAL when asked for something it
does not implement, which I understand is a bit weird from a mux subsys
pov. But that can be the case anyways because even though the mux supports
these options, the board it is used on does no necessarily have to support
these options, e.g. there may be only 2 lanes of DP hooked up to the mux
(or no DP at all, but then I would them to expect a different mux).

So the Type-C Port Manager already needs to be passed some platform
data describing which features the board has and keep that in mind
when negotiation with the dongle attached to the Type-C port, so if
we do get boards which do HDMI and no DP, then the TCPM would simply
never use the MUX_TYPEC_HOST_AND_DP_SRC and MUX_TYPEC_DP_SRC states.

Regards,

Hans
