Post Cursor2 was completely optional for the transmitter even before it
was deprecated.

And now we'd be adding 5 bytes extra to all link status reads. To fix
the only user of drm_dp_get_adjust_request_post_cursor() that apparently
has never worked as intended. I'm just not convinced.

I was trying to look through the implications of DP_LINK_STATUS_SIZE
increase, and at least drm_dp_dpcd_read_phy_link_status() comes across
as something probably needing attention.


BR,
Jani.
