I'm not familiar with the lcd.c, so I may be talking nonsense, but I
don't quite understand the need for this patch. If you have some kind of
panel driver, shouldn't the panel driver handle power off in just one
place?

With omapfb and omapdss, the omapfb's fb_blank function just calls power
off in the panel driver, which handles all necessary actions. Is your
model somehow totally different?
