Yeah, I think we should have all this extra information in the struct
drm_panel. However, I think we need to more carefully split things such
that the DT parsing happens at panel probe time. That way we can catch
errors in DT, or missing entries/resources when we can still do
something about it.

If we start parsing DT and encounter failures, it's going to be very
confusing if that's at panel attach time where code will usually just
assume that everything is already validated and can't fail anymore.
