Yeah, I tried not to use it since I didn't want to cripple the parser
with bad heuristics, but Geert has done a much better job than my
attempts here:
https://lore.kernel.org/dri-devel/2eb205da88c3cb19ddf04d167ece4e16a330948b.1657788997.git.geert@linux-m68k.org/

I've taken that patch in, renamed the modes and we already have unit
tests in other patches to cover that part of the parser.

I'm not sure. We never supported something like that so far, because the
expectation is that if it starts with a letter, it's a named mode. Thus
the named mode is PALe in your case, which doesn't match.

I'm not even sure what would be a good heuristic to support it, since
interpreting any e, E, or D as the last letter seems like a recipe for
disaster when some modes might legitimately end with e or d.

I think that's what we should be using in that case.
