If CONFIG_DRM_IMX_LDB is enabled, LVDS DT channels are enabled
and no LVDS-panels are connected the imx-ldb driver will
fail to bind.

This is a problem, since it will prevent other actually connected
display output from being used, even if they bind properly.

This at the same time as HDMI binds properly:

[    4.458954] dwhdmi-imx 120000.hdmi: Detected HDMI TX controller v1.30a with 
HDCP (DWC HDMI 3D TX PHY)
[    4.469633] imx-drm display-subsystem: bound 120000.hdmi (ops dw_hdmi_imx_ops)

Which in the end causes the IMX driver to not initialize properly
and ignore the HDMI connection that bound properly.
This in turn prevents us from having any graphical output while there
is no LVDS panel connected.

Not as far as I know.

How a Nitrogen6-Max board without a LVDS panel, but using the
imx_v6_v7_defconfig ever started and had displayed graphical
output on other connected displays I don't know though.
