So... should I read this as if it determines whether the IP block unpacks
the pixels? If so, the description is at least inaccurate: remember this
isn't specific to Linux.

There's nothing wrong in not unpacking it; it just means the formats will
be different. The property name seems sensible IMO.

Please wrap your lines at 76 or so characters.

Seems good to me.

So far I'm familiar with two cases. In the firstc case, the number of lanes
is determined by what is connected on the board. This is naturally
supported. The second one is that in some cases, a device is not able to
use all the connected lanes. This can be supported using the frame
descriptors through the receiver querying the transmitter device's frame
descriptor.
