My first thought is that the driver should exit probe silently with ENODEV if there are no outputs
defined (but, of course, with EPROBE_DEFER if there are outputs which haven't been probed yet).

It gets a bit more complex if we ever support writeback, as that can be used as mem-to-mem without
any displays, but I think we can ignore that for now.
