From your description it sounds more like this is in fact a property of
the panel. Or maybe I should say "quirk". If the panel doesn't generate
the HPD signal, then that should be a property of the panel, not the
connector. The eDP specification mandates that connectors have a HPD
signal, though it allows the "HPD conductor in the connector cable" to
be omitted if not used by the source. I'd consider the cable to belong
to the panel rather than the connector, so absence of HPD, either
because the cable doesn't have the conductor or because the panel does
not generate the signal, should be a quirk of the panel.

That said you could have a panel that supports HPD connected via a cable
that doesn't transmit it, so this would be a per-board variant and hence
should be a device tree property rather than hard-coded in some panel

Conversely, if the panel isn't capable of generating an HPD signal, then
I don't think it would be appropriate to make it a DT property. It would
be better to hard-code it in the driver, lest someone forget to set the
property in DT and get stuck with a device that isn't operational.
