For now, I'll just put width, height, bpc, orientation, bus_flags, and
bus_formats in the drm_panel struct. Those are pretty consistently set
from either get_modes or prepare. The other thing those all have in
common is that the values don't change.

We could just add an entire drm_display_info struct inside drm_panel,
but I don't know if we can just copy that over or set a pointer
without breaking something else, since some of the values in the
drm_display_info struct are not set by the panel (but maybe set by
something else).

Thanks for the review
