Hi Oleksandr & Stafan.

Thanks for the update to panel-lvds.

There are a few high-level things we need to have sorted out.

The driver, when this patch is added, assumes that certain properties
are now mandatory when using the panel-dpi compatible.
- data-mapping
- width-mm
- height-mm
- panel-timing

But this does not match the panel-dpi binding.
So we need the panel-dpi binding updated first.


The current driver specify the connector type in drm_panel_init().
But a DPI panel is assumed to use a DRM_MODE_CONNECTOR_DPI,
and not a DRM_MODE_CONNECTOR_LVDS.
So the drm_panel_init() call needs to take into account the type
of binding.

I think changing the name of the driver like this is an UAPI change,
which is not OK
