It support DSI and DPI, I will to point out.

It can support both eDP output or USB Type-C output.

OK, I think pon-gpios can qualify as an enable.

Once the anx7625 received eDP HPD signal, the firmware will report HPD
interrupt to AP through defined gpio interrupt pin "hpd-gpios". It used
for interrupt between anx7625 and AP, not used for output.

OK, will fix it.

Yes, they are mutually exclusive.
There are 3 case, one is support google "external connector" framework,
one support internal panel, the other is support normal eDP output, so I
defined two flags to distinguish them here. Based on your comment below,
I'll define output port to distinguish them.

I didn't know where can quiry this value. Can you give me more detail?

OK, I'll fetch the dsi lanes from DSI endpoints.

I'll add DPI input port.

OK.

I think there should exist 3 output port, one is for extern connector,
one is for normal eDP, other is for internal panel eDP.

OK, I'll change it in the next series.
