I was going to mention that. Interactions between mode_valid and mode_fixup
are not defined clearly. Additionally, even though it might be a bit out of
scope for this patch series, I think we should also define what mode_fixup is
allowed to fix and what it should reject straight away.

Thinking about it, do we really need two separate operations ? As I understand
it, mode_fixup is mostly (only ? - this is where we need documentation) used
to fixup the pixel clock frequency as clock generators usually have
limitations in their dividers. We assume that the sync won't care too much,
and happily feed it with a mode that is slightly different from what userspace
requested. Given that mode_valid should accepts mode for which the exact pixel
clock frequency can't bee achieved, and that the atomic commit will fixup that
frequency anyway, can't we apply the same processing to modes enumerated by
the connector, and merge the mode_valid and mode_fixup operations ?
