I have no plans for tiny/, it's just a place to put tiny DRM drivers of
all sorts.

Whether or not to have "full" DRM drivers in panel/ is up to Sam and
Laurent I guess, currently there's only drm_panel drivers in there. I
have no objections to doing that though.

I just wanted to make sure we don't have 2 drivers for the same display.
