Our TCON driver still expects RGB or LVDS panel / bridges on endpoint 0.
So I guess this was sort of implied historically. It's no longer true.
This is something we should probably fix.

In practice our drivers don't look at it (yet), but rely on the downstream
encoder type to determine which channel to use.

But please add the "allwinner,tcon-channel" property as specified in
the binding.

Which one goes first doesn't quite matter. IIRC there's also a mux for TVE?
