Yes, it meant 'ignore'.

The goal was to be able to have a way to keep the old behavior while 
still being able to set the flags.

So, with the imx-drm driver, if none of the DRM_MODE_FLAG_POL_PIXDATA 
were set(that is POSEDGE, NEGEDGE, PRESERVE), then in ipuv3-crtc.c, it 
went using the old flags settings that were previously hardcoded.

The same applied for DRM_MODE_FLAG_POL_DE.
The patch using theses flags is the 08/12 of this same serie.

So I will have to describe it in the "Connector Helper Operations" 
section of drm.tmpl, right before the mode_valid synopsis ?
