As far as I can tell the way this would be solved would be to actually
pass &bridge in and then make sure that a bridge would be in place for
the DP connector. In the full DP case you'll get an -EPROBE_DEFER if
the connector hasn't been probed but once it's probed then it should
register as a bridge and thus give you the info you need (AKA that
this isn't a panel).

I haven't done the digging to see how all this works, but according to
Laurent [1]: "Physical connectors are already handled as bridges, see
drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/display-connector.c"

So basically I think this is solvable in code and there's no reason to
mess with the devicetree bindings to solve this problem. Does that
sound right?
