To clarify a bit more, this is because this chip is actually a
TCPC+mux+HDMI=>DP converter
(https://www.analogix.com/en/products/convertersbridges/anx7688). In
Chromebook architecture, TCPC+mux is controlled by the EC (including
power and other control pins), and the only reason we need a driver
for the HDMI=>DP converter is to get the number of lanes on the DP
side and filter out resolutions. Also, the converter is on a different
I2C address and it could almost be considered as a separate device.

(of course we could write a kernel driver for the TCPC+mux but we'll
leave that to others if there's ever a board that is built with the
TCPC part connected to the AP)

We asked for these registers to be added to ANX FW, and this is the FW
that is used by all elm/hana Chromebooks (I have no idea about other
ANX customers...). We have facilities to update the ANX FW from
coreboot/depthcharge on Chromebooks, but that does not really matter:
the factory FW of all MP Chromebooks does provide these registers.

Thanks.
