I've discussed this on #dri-devel with Daniel a week or two ago. His
advice was to drop LT from atomic check, relying on DPCD (DisplayPort
Configuration Data) instead. If LT then fails to negotiate a high-enough
bandwidth for the mode when enabling the output, the link-status
property should be set to bad, and userspace should retry. I think
you've seen the discussion, I can provide a log if needed.
