These flags are used to reconfigure the link during the link training procedure as described in DisplayPort spec. In this procedure , we may need to configure only subset of parameters (VS, Pre-emphasis, link rate and num of lanes) depending on different phases. e.g. At one stage, we may need to configure only Voltage swing and Pre-emphasis keeping number of lanes and link rate intact(set_voltages=true), while at other stage, we may need to configure all parameters. We use the flags to determine which parameter is updated during link training. Using separate flags for this provides control to upper layer.
I am not sure how to use validate to achieve this. As per my understanding validate is used to verify if set of parameters can be handled by PHY.

Thanks & Regards,
