Oh, I think the first/second case isn't suitable in this case, my panel
"cnm,n116bgeea2" haven't included HPD signal.

Yeah, just like I reply to Thierry, this is a panel quirk. And he 
suggest we should
handle this in panel driver, but I have no idea how to handle this in 
common panel
driver.   :)
