SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/2] Docs/EDID: Fixed and improved EDID documentation

I spoke to Carsten and his intention apparently was to merely document
how the somewhat cryptic data structures in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_edid_load.c
were derived. The code needed to be run only once to generate the data and
never again. So it not really is a tool that someone may want to run from time
to time for a particular purpose. So we would propose to leave the EDID directory
where it currently is. However, should you feel that it would better be placed
in the tools directory then you certainly may do that.

Best regards,
Christoph
