The idea is that early boot code which uses the simplefb node (no more
complex display driver loaded yet) knows the panel's DPI so that it can
decide if hi-dpi rendering / scaling is necessary or not.

This definitely is a useful feature to have.

I guess that for dt systems an alternative approach could be to
add a link to the panel node to the simplefb dt-node.
