In ChromeOS we get modes a couple times and then whenever we connect or
disconnect a DP cable for external display we also get modes. It seems
that we also run modetest at boot but I'm not sure why we do that. I
think it is to gather diagnostic data for all the EDIDs on the device at
boot so we know what all is connected.

I'd like to add the caching somewhere in the core (maybe the bridge
connector code?) but I don't know what the logic should be. Is it eDP
and if not hpd notify then cache all the time and if it is eDP and hpd
notify then cache once hpd notify says detected and drop cache when no
longer detected?

if (eDP) {
if (!hpd)
cache();
else if (hpd_detected()) {
cache();
else if (!hpd_detected()) {
drop_cache();
}
}

I thought that EDID could change and HPD can be pulsed to notify that it
should be read again.
