That's kind of weird and one of the reasons why I can't make myself like
the OF graph bindings. It requires drivers for one device to reach into
the device tree node of some other device and look for content. Or put
another way, a DT node for a panel that works on one platform doesn't
work on another because the display controller needs additional DT
content that isn't required by the original binding for the panel.
