The other option is that it behaves as a mirror (i.e. same pixels are scanned out of LVDS channel A and B). Either option can be added by either adding a DT property which would enable the mirror mode, or new port linking the LVDS endpoint to the same panel twice, and/or two new ports for DSI85, so there is no problem to extend the bindings without breaking them. So for now I would ignore this mode.

Such a new flag could be added over time to panels where applicable, so old setups won't be broken by that either, they will just ignore the new flag and work as before.

A dual-link LVDS panel should need 2 ports, because each LVDS link could come from different controllers, here by the same but simply connect the 2 panel ports to the 2 controller's ports.
