Why I need to call drm_panel_attach?

I believe drm_panel_attach() was to attach a panel to a connector, but we don't
need to do this with the new API as the connector is already created and
attached to the "dummy" encoder.

Makes that sense to you? What do you think will not work if I don't call
drm_panel_attach?
