Subject[PATCH v4 03/17] drm/uAPI: Add "active bpc" as feedback channel for "max bpc" drm property
Date
Add a new general drm property "active bpc" which can be used by graphic
drivers to report the applied bit depth per pixel back to userspace.

While "max bpc" can be used to change the color depth, there was no way to
check which one actually got used. While in theory the driver chooses the
best/highest color depth within the max bpc setting a user might not be
fully aware what his hardware is or isn't capable off. This is meant as a
quick way to double check the setup.

In the future, automatic color calibration for screens might also depend on
this information being available.
