I'm not qualified as a dw-hdmi expert but until the internal i2c controller
is exposed as a "standard" i2c adapter (which is a valuable feature),
blacklisting a fixed address is wrong, and we should detect invalid/malformed
transactions instead that doesn't fit in the HW model OR really stop emulating
an i2c adapter.

Moving to drm_do_get_edid() would need to entirely rewrite or refactor communication
code to handle the SCDC transactions, since they use an i2c adapter...
