There are some similar chips, for example:
https://www.paradetech.com/zh-hant/%E7%94%A2%E5%93%81%E4%BB%8B%E7%B4%B9/ps8223-3-0gbps-hdmi-12-demultiplexer/
and http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/ts3dv642.pdf
If they are used in a similar way
(https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CANMq1KDDEzPWhByEtn-EjNcg+ofVT2MW-hOXANGooYFOYJ35VA@mail.gmail.com/),
they would need such driver. But currently we only know that mt8173
oak board have this use case.
