Hi Laurent Pinchart, the swing register setting is optional. Basically, no need
to care about it if customer PCB layout match our chip requirement. The
property define just in case. So far, we just found one customer encountered
DP tx swing issue. As the datasheet swing register adjusting algorithm
has a little complex, we will help customer to adjust the DP tx swing
case by case.

At anx7625 driver probe stage, for the DSI, driver needs call some special
interface to attach to DSI interface. For the DPI port, there is no such
limitation, so we need to know what kind of MIPI signal type at driver initial
stage.
Maybe we can keep this flag, if the future has defined DSI, I'll submit new
patch to remove this flag.
