Ah, interesting. It looks like Rob has already posted a Fixup on my patch:

https://lore.kernel.org/r/20191215200632.1019065-1-robdclark@gmail.com

...that should also read the supported rates. I need to go and review
/ test his new patch (I lost access to the hardware but should get it
back tomorrow or the next day), but would you be OK with going that
route? I think my series is a superset of yours. Specifically it has
these extra features atop yours:

* If link training fails and the panel supports faster rates, it will
try a faster rate in case it works.

* It adds support for using 6bpp when that's all that's needed,
reducing bandwidth to the panel (and link rate)

* It breaks things into smaller functions (assuming you agree this is
a good thing).
