Hi,

Starting with this patch, PAL-N should be supported as well, right?

What I was aiming for is to have all the cases we have in all the
drivers covered so that we can make that property generic. i915
declares and uses all those variants:

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/display/intel_sdvo.c#L68

Especially since it's i915 and it's pretty much the standard as far as
the uAPI goes, I'd rather avoid any regression there.

I'd be open to it, but we can always extend vc4 to support those modes
later on. The work you did to make that easier should make it trivial.
