It doesn't seem the _ADR value has to be the format defined by _DOD, as
the example of the ACPI spec gives:
Method (_ADR, 0) {
So that is not the problem here.

The problem is, we don't have any way of matching an ACPI output device
node to a drm connector of the same type when there are more than 1 of
those with the same type, i.e. we don't know how the index value are
assigned by BIOS.
