The encoders connected to a dual-LVDS panels may need to do special
arrangements for the dual-link setup, like initializing a companion
encoder, and working out which pixels (even or odd) to send to which
port (first LVDS input port or second LVDS input port). At least, this is
within the scope of the implementation of this series, which is currently
being discussed.

The other fields are still applicable to panels, so I think it makes sense 
for this to be included in struct drm_panels.

I am sorry about this, some people don't want to be bothered by the whole
thing, I'll make sure I add you to the recipients list for the next iterations
of this series.

Thanks,
Fab
