There might be the issue of possible CSI -> IC -> DC -> DI passthrough,
where the DI timing must be synchronized to the CSI input signal.
I haven't really thought about how that should be integrated with the
DRM driver mostly because of the 1024 pixel output width maximum in the
IC, which limits the usefulness somewhat.
I like the use of struct videomode here for the symmetry with patch 6.
But currently, we could make ipu_di_adjust_videomode take a drm_display_mode
just as well.

regards
Philipp
