Hm, isn't that something you can already overload with the video=
parameter?

video=<output>:<resolution>[-<bpp>]

AFAIR, <bpp> encodes the color depth, so what is the benefit of adding
this new property to overload the default depth?

Maybe I'm wrong and the default depth param is actually useful, but in
this case we should probably make it generic since other drivers seems
to need it too, and we might want to attach it to a specific display
engine instance.

Thanks,

Boris
