I can take the blame for the fact that it does caching, since I
requested it in early reviews. In general boot speed is pretty
important to me and each read of the EDID take 20 ms. There are
definitely several calls to get the EDID during a normal bootup.
Stephen did a little more digging into exactly what was causing all
these calls and can chime in, but in general until we can eliminate
the extra calls it seems like it'd be nice to keep the caching? This
bridge chip is intended for use for eDP for internal panels, so there
should be no downside to caching. If we can later optimize the DRM
core, we can fix this and a pre-existing driver that does the same
type of caching (analogix-anx6345.c) at the same time?
