Hi Douglas,

Thank you for the patch.

The delay shouldn't be handled in the panel driver, but I think it's still a 
property of the panel, and should thus be specified in the panel DT node. The 
panel driver should parse it from DT (or, if the panel driver knows about the 
specific panel model, just hardcode it), and then report it to the bridge 
driver which can then decide, based on its knowledge if the bridge internal 
HPD processing delays, to just wait for a fixed delay or use regular HPD 
handling.
