I assume it is not *just* this one bridge that can be programmed over
either i2c or dsi, depending on how things are wired up on the board.
It certainly would be nice for regmap to support this case, so we
don't have to write two different bridge drivers for the same bridge.
I wouldn't expect a panel that is only programmed via dsi to use this.
