I don't think that display_info.bpc actually implies a minimum bpc, only a
maximum bpc iirc (Ville would know the answer to this one). The other thing to
note here is that we want to assume the lowest possible bpc here since we're
only concerned if the mode passed to ->mode_valid can be set under -any-
conditions (including those that require lowering the bpc beyond it's maximum
value), so we definitely do want to always use 6bpc here even once we get
support for optimizing the bpc based on the available display bandwidth.
