It would be nice if we could add the details you mentioned in
patch #0 in either this or the next patch.

This is one of those bindings which is more a knob than a HW property,
but I can't think of any easy way to figure this out in SW. So, I guess
it's okay to have.

One thing I was wondering about was whether this prop should belong to
the eDP controller or the eDP panel. I don't have any strong opinion
about it, though.
