You'll see the fairly long list of places where VDD AUX is needed in my
other reply; a couple of them could probably be fixed by moving the PPS
calls around.

Yes, making it cleaner would help a ton. There are some basic problems
with the DRM API that make this hard though -- intel_dp_prepare may not
ever be followed by a call to intel_dp_commit. That's why I had the VDD
AUX stuff get turned off by a delayed work proc instead.

Also, leaving VDD AUX high after EDID is fetched means that we can start
the mode setting immediately, rather than having to wait for the
power-off/power-on delay (which is really long).

What we could do is force VDD AUX off after the panel gets turned on;
that would ensure that turning the panel off would actually turn the
power off, rather than having VDD stay high for some time after that.
