We've come a full circle on this one :)

1) Originally, we had disable_ddi() setting the branch power state to
D3.
2) Then "Use MST sideband message transactions for dpms control" removed
that as a bug fix for some devices. The sideband solution was chosen
over the D3_AUX_ON approach this patch takes.
3) Next, "Write to SET_POWER dpcd to enable MST hub" effectively took us
back to the original state due to a regression.
4) Now, we are calling (3) a regression and implementing D3_AUX_ON.


I guess, this combination should work for most devices. But, we should
test this on a few different MST hubs before going ahead.
